CEDAR CITY — With fall starting to make its presence known – at least in some parts of Southern Utah – the Cedar City Arts Council is inviting the public to enjoy the remaining days of summer by attending another Final Friday Art Walk. The free event will take place Friday from 5-8 p.m. and feature multiple talented artists from the community.

In addition to the various art forms on display along the University Boulevard route from Main Street to the Southern Utah Museum of Art, the Final Friday Art Walks also feature art demonstrations and live jazz, contemporary and classical music.

There will be artist demonstrations and exhibits from The Sagebrush Fiber Artisans Guild, Twisted Sister and Sunshine Pearl Dives Jewelry on the lawn at the corner of 100 West and University Boulevard. Representatives from the Cedar City Music Arts series and The Orchestra of Southern Utah will also be in attendance at this location selling season tickets to their upcoming shows.

Artisans Gallery will be featuring art from Tina Davis, as well as music from vocal artist Roice Nelson from 6-7 p.m., followed by violinist Alex Szuhay until 8 p.m.

ArtWorks Gallery will showcase painter and sculptor Victoria Wagner, with a vocal performance by Sofie Scaletta from 5-8 p.m.

The Red Rock Flute Choir will be performing at 6 p.m. in front of Stone Path. Comprising flutists from throughout Washington County, the flute choir originated because of their contact with each other through various other groups such as the Dixie State University Flute Choir, Washington City Concert Band and Southwest Symphony. Their musical repertoire includes classical, modern, popular, show tunes, religious pieces and marches. Joey Favino will be doing art demonstrations in front of Stone Path, as well as having an exhibit inside.
