ArtWalk7 at Temple Theatre
Live Band/Muscians Family Friendly

Starting at 11am, you can pick up your glass, wrist band, and art/wine map in the Temple Theatre lobby. Then journey through the downtown area, sampling wine and viewing the work of local artists. We have stops set up at 27 different local businesses. When you're ready for a break, head over to Depot Park, and enjoy any of the three bands that we've lined up. Roger Hester & the High Countrymen will go on at 11am. Gregg Gelb takes to the stage at 1pm, and the Watson/Wheeler Band will wind things down at 3pm. Throughout the day, several local artists will be at work, creating pieces inspired by the day's event. That work, and several other pieces will be auctioned off at Lisa Mathis's ArtStudio as the final flourish of the Temple Theatre's 7th Annual Downtown Sanford Art Walk.
