Tonight’s Uptown Art Walk will still mix in a little politics, but no formal remarks will be forthcoming.

John Bullard, owner of the new Gallery dba at 817 Dickinson Ave., invited candidates for the Greenville City Council to stop by during the Art Walk and make some remarks about how they would support the arts community.

Several candidates are planning to visit, but Bullard canned the idea of remarks because many said they had already made other plans by the time invitations reached them.

He said in an email to the candidates, “In the spirit of keeping things non-partisan, the art forum format for tomorrow has changed.” 

As of Wednesday afternoon, mayoral candidate Calvin Mercer, at-large candidate Christopher Nunnally and District 4 incumbent Rick Smiley confirmed they will attend.

Bullard said he still hopes others will come but the conversation will be casual and floating.

A forum on the arts with candidates is in the works, he said.

“In this current climate of politics, all candidates should have the opportunity to share their ideas at events like we were striving to have,” Bullard said in an email to the candidates.

Friday promises to be a busy night downtown that includes the first Freeboot Friday ahead of ECU’s home football opener against James Madison.

Several galleries have new exhibits including Emerge on Evans Street, which will feature Beyond Bricks and Mortar, a project by ECU's Joyner Library. 

The Greenville Museum of Art has several exhibits including Greenville Brushstrokes: Painting Down East and Universe of the Mind: Inquiry and Inspiration by Nature" Exhibition by Hanna Jubran.

The Art Walk is held the first Friday of each month and includes and number of special offerings at restaurants and bars.
