Revamped in 2020 with a significant expansion in programming, the new iteration has got it all.

From 5-9pm you can expect a huge block party with street closure of Elliot Street and Harmony Parking lot featuring an outdoor stage with live music, a food truck food court, 80 ft of community table featuring white table cloths and locals blooms courtesy of the Brattleboro Garden Club. 18 galleries will boast new exhibit openings, many with the artists present to speak with guests. Interactive art stations pop-up all over Downtown with a diverse array of activities and exhibits- for example you’ll see artists live painting on easels along Main Street. A point of considerable pride is that these events are free and are meant to truly have something for everyone. Art, in all it’s forms, brings people together like no other and that’s what Gallery Walk is all about.

Tricyckle is a dream-like adventure of mystery and transformation. A renegade “carny” from the Fairground rides a tricycle and pulls a trailer full of objects that seem most insignificant; boxes and scraps of things rusted and broken. However, hidden within is a deep puzzle of buried memories and fragmented dreams. His Tricycle becomes his accomplice; transforming itself at moments into a Wheel of Fortune, a Ferris Wheel, a Punch Clock, a Beautiful Woman and a Beast. His Trailer and the boxes within it reveal secrets; changing into cityscapes, back alleys, cargo ships and fairgrounds. Through a strange and curious ritual of introspection, the Tricycle guides the man to relive the cycles and images of his life in a search for freedom.

Arising from the modes of improvisation, free jazz, noise, avant-garde, modern composition, electronics, electro-acoustic, vocal work, and traditional instrumentation, the unifying principle of these artists is their dedication to exploratory, hypothetical, investigational, probing, observational, theoretical, innovative, inventive, radical, avant-garde, anti-normative, alternative, fringe, unfamiliar, unorthodox, unconventional, unusual, eccentric, avant-garde, avant-core, free thinking, way-out music.

Both physical and streaming audiences will be treated to unique sounds and first-time ever performances, guaranteed to inspire wonder, amazement and delight. Each evening will bring the listener deeper into the world of musicians who have left the norms and abandoned the pop and easy listening culture, to continually investigate and create music of the greatest depth and personal expression that reaches directly into the algebra of the mind, heart, and soul.
