Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio of New Milford and the New Milford Commission on the Arts are seeking established artists and volunteers for a 2016 New Milford Art Walk.

The rain-or-shine event, set for Aug. 27 from 1 to 6 p.m., is held in association with event directors Kayla Ek and Lacee Yurtoglu.

Businesses are invited to play host to an established artist.

Ek and Yurtoglu are adding to the visual art experience by seeking sites for window painting, speaking with non-profits who have visual art components and enlisting dancers and others, who will perform throughout the day.

Walk participants are invited to shop the downtown businesses and restaurants and attend the New Milford Commission on the Arts-sponsored concert with Songhorse at the bandstand that night at 7:30 p.m.

A 2016 New Milford Art Walk “map” naming the participating businesses and artists will be available on the day of the event at Gallery 25 at 25 Church St.

The maps will include information about additional events and sites of interest.

Artists, volunteers, businesses of all types looking to apply or seeking more information may submit their application to participate by visiting or emailing at
