Montross will unveil three murals during First Friday Art Walk

This month’s First Friday Art Walk in Montross will be packed with activities. Aside from the area locations featuring artwork, locals and visitors will get a chance to view the progress of the three murals contracted by Bridget’s Boutique, Carrot Cottage, and The Westmoreland County Museum.

World-renowned artists Melanie Stimmell and Anat Ronen have come a long way to produce three murals with a village theme to boost the town’s revitalization efforts, already underway.

Stimmell is from California and is well known for her 3-D Renaissance-style street paintings, as well as her work on the iconic animated series, South Park.

Ronen, born and raised in the State of Israel, is currently living in Houston, Texas. However, her work takes her all over the country. Ronen’s first large-scale project was four murals on the Galveston Causeway, which measures ninety feet long. Currently, she has created over 400 smaller murals along highways, on commercial buildings, schools, churches and even private homes.

The two artists will be on hand Friday, June 6, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. during the Art Walk to meet with art walkers and media. The gathering is being co-hosted by the Greater Montross Partnership for Revitalization (GMPFR) and the Montross Revitalization Steering Committee.

Events will feature a wine garden hosted by Hague Winery, live music by the Blackthorn String Band, and some local high school students will be putting on street performances.

Aside from the new murals, the following local shops will be displaying artwork from local and visiting artists; The Art of Coffee, Carrot Cottage, Compulsive Cravings, Diane Jackson Gallery, Eagles Catch, The Inn at Montross, and The Westmoreland County Museum, including The Old Wakefield Building.

Although Friday is all about the Arts, the murals are part of the town’s revitalization efforts being funded by a Community Development Block Grant. The revitalization projects are focused on the center part of town, through which State Route 3 runs. The theme for the revitalization is “Return to the Village”. In addition to the three new murals, the two artists will also touchup the famous Coca-Cola mural.

Montross Councilman Terry Cosgrove and his wife have opened their home to visiting artists, Stimmell and Ronen, and area restaurants will provide meals during their stay. Cosgrove said the ladies have been kind enough to spend the per diem they would’ve spent on lodging and food, to make the three murals they’ve been contracted to create, a little larger.
