Gallery 25 and Creative Art Studio on Church Street, the New Milford Commission on the Arts and local merchants will team up Aug. 2 from noon to 6 p.m. for the inaugural ArtWalk.

Artists and merchants interested in participating in the juried fine arts show are welcome.

The show will be followed by a concert at the bandstand, part of the Commission on the Arts' annual Edwin Kinkade concert series.

Local artists will be paired with participating merchants in downtown New Milford and will be asked to demonstrate their art form.

Businesses will showcase artists' work in an interior public area of the businesses during the hours of the walk.

The deadline for artists and merchants to inquire is June 20. There is a minimal fee for merchants.
