The Lookout: Stroll through downtown on year’s last ArtWalk

The city’s final ArtWalk of the season will be held this weekend.

The free, self-guided tour will run from 3 to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday at 12 galleries around the city.

Special activities planned this time include:

Chameleon: An opening reception will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday for “Gravitas and Whimsy,” the gallery’s Fall Art Group Show. The exhibit, which runs through Nov. 8, features new work by Chameleon artists and introduces new artists Coco Berkman, Brian Nash and Paul Toussaint.

Firehouse Art Gallery: Meet photographer Astrid Reischwitz from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday. Her new exhibit “Street Art” captures the interactions of people with street art in amusing and sometimes-amazing juxtapositions.

Indigo Artist Studio: “Paint and Print” is a new exhibit featuring painter Marjet Lesk and printmaker Mary Arthur Pollak, owner of the studio. The work is a marriage in abstraction and representational landscape in a variety of mediums. The show will be open from noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. It can also be seen by appointment, through Nov. 15.

Valerie’s Gallery: A special “Meet the Artists” event will be held Saturday from 3 to 7. Jewelers Rebecca Alden, who makes delicate sterling silver jewelry with gemstones and sea glass, and Jill O’Reilly, who is known for her sterling silver cuffs, will be on hand, along with printmaker Kathleen Buchanan and potter Iris Minc. Buchanan creates her original prints using the collagraph process and is known for scenes of the coast and native birds. Minc, owner of Purple Sage Pottery in Merrimac, will show her newest works in porcelain.

The Walsingham Gallery: A painting demonstration by James Kubiatowicz will be held Saturday from 3 to 7. Kubiatowicz’s gestural paintings capture small but significant moments in people’s lives, such as grocery shopping, walks in the woods, elegant dances, tea parties and billiards games.
