Fall Gallery Walk: A Night for Artists and Art Lovers in Sewickley

The annual Gallery Walk continues today in downtown Sewickley.

A decent crowd came out Friday night to visit the exhibited works of some talented artitsts as part of Sewickley's Fall Gallery Walk.

Timothy Hadfield of the Sewickley Arts Initiative, said 115 people came through the gallery doors to see SAI's Rebound exhibit about halfway through the evening. 

Some of the artists included Lily Hoy of Pittsburgh and Margaret Hollander of Sewickley, whose books of art are included as part of "Rebound: Reconceptualizing Our Notion of the Physical Book."

Hollander's book is made from sheets of mica and uses print, feathers and ferns to give it a certain touch. One of Hoy's books is made from recycled materials, and another "Words for Women," includes drawers. She said the book was crafted as a joke between friends. All of the books tell a story.

"They're all unusual in the sense that you're never going to see another one just like it," Hoy said. 

Visitors also browsed works from the Republic of Georgia over at International Images Ltd., and more than 70 books on display at the Sewickley Public Library. 

The gallery walk continues today (Saturday) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and all of the exhibits are located within walking distance of each other. .
