The Switchboard welcomes 2020 artist-in-residence Tina Gagnon back to 43 Washington St. for the month of July. She will be sharing her intricate colored pencil designs, and Marc Mannheimer will be set-up with his screen printed shirts capturing an intimate glimpse of Haverhill. Head over to Wingate St. and grab a pint at Peddler’s Daughter where Nia Walkowiah will be leading a cyanotype demonstration.
Like June Art Walk, the artist collective Heaventown Haverhill will be at Washington Square, serving as a mecca for music, in addition to spots chosen by bands and acoustic performers who will be busking along the route. Wicked Big will also be hosting an open mic from 4-6pm with work by Pixie Yates on exhibit in the café.
