Inaugural Art Walk Huntingdon Set for Thursday, September 15, 5 to 8 pm

An exciting new art promotion is set for beginning the third Thursday of every month, starting Thursday, September 15, from 5 to 8 pm. Art Walk Huntingdon is a special event celebrating the arts at local venues & businesses. Look for Art Walk flags for participating venues.

The Arts Council’s event will feature demonstrations and interactions with some of the teachers of the upcoming Fiber ArtsFest (September 16 & 17, more info at www.fiberartsfest.org)

Huntingdon Landmarks, Inc. is launching a Third Thursday promotion in downtown Huntingdon to promote the borough’s artsscene. Art Walk Huntingdon will take place on the third Thursday of every month beginning on September 15, 2016 during the hours of 5:00-8:00 PM.

Landmarks chairman Matt Price explains, “Art Walk Huntingdon will really focus on getting the community into arts related businesses and organizations throughout the borough, and will tie in nicely with the Farmers Market and other Thursday events during the summer months in Huntingdon.”

The goal of Art Walk Huntingdon is to get people moving about and experiencing the arts throughout the year, the walking part is optional. Huntingdon County ArtsCouncil executive director John Kearns adds, “Huntingdon is experiencing a boom in arts-related businesses and organizations, with several new galleries and performance companies starting in the past five years.”

The third Thursday events will also provide an opportunity for the local Huntingdon community to connect with Juniata College and visitors to the area. Kathryn Blake of the Juniata College Museum of Art sees great potential with this connection, saying, “The museum is thrilled to participate in Art Walk Huntingdon! We are extending our Thursday hours and look forward to showing the museum’s collection as well as student and faculty work to the community.”

“This is a great fit for Huntingdon Landmarks through the 4 and More Cultural District partnership,” adds Price. “This is exactly the type of event that will help Landmarks’ mission of promoting the economic viability of historic landmarks in Huntingdon.”

Art Walk Huntingdon events will be free to the public thanks to the sponsorship of participating businesses and the Huntingdon County Visitors Bureau.

Chip Lovett will bring his jazz keyboard to the Concerts of the Quad music series. The Huntingdon County Arts Council and Juniata College once again are bringing music to the community with our Concerts on the Quad music series.

Chip Lovett was raised in Brooklyn, New York and was exposed musically by playing clarinet in elementary school and trumpet in Junior high school. During his junior year at Juniata College located in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania in 1975, he began to explore a different instrument, the piano, due to listening to jazz legends such as Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock , his main musical influences even today.

Chip received individual piano lessons for three years and then created Bryne/ Lovett , a jazz saxophone/ keyboard duo which subsequently led to the creation of Urban Fusion, a fusion jazz band which he started with three other members in State College Pennsylvania.

As a solo keyboard artist, Chip has performed in the Huntingdon County area at weddings, fine dining establishments and has collaborated with other musicians performing for the Huntingdon Historical Society. Chip also performed with Urban Fusion at the Juneteenth Celebration in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania for the last seven years. Chip was also the guest pianist performing jazz standards for the Juniata College Jazz band in 2013.

Chip has recorded duo- jazz projects, performs trio jazz piano and has served as musical director and arranger for numerous jazz, R&B and vocal groups in the State College area.
