The Wayne County Arts Alliance is excited to invite the public to the Opening Reception and Celebration of our 2023 Edition of THE GREAT WALL OF HONESDALE on June 10, 2023 with a rain date of June 11.
We will gather at 2 PM at The Great Wall of Honesdale at 4th and Main Streets, Honesdale, with a reception and photo opportunity for the twelve artists, thanks to WCAA member David Soete.
2023 marks the 8th edition of The Great Wall of Honesdale, which called for a theme of “Home is…”. CONGRATULATIONS to this year’s artists – Amy Smith of Newfoundland, Jim Ferraro, Connor Simon, Colleen Campbell, Michael R. Smith, Corey Rutledge, Gail Mardfin, Amanda Rowe, Amy Smith of Honesdale, Victor Polanco, Diane Motroni, Siena Davis. Their original art, which includes fiber art/improvisational quilt, digital illustration, photography, colored pencil drawings, and acrylic, watercolor and oil paintings were digitally reproduced on 11 x 17-foot panels of billboard vinyl and mounted on the side wall of Top Notch Industries at the south end of Main Street. The panels will be on display for a full year.
Details about the many area businesses and individuals who have donated to make The Great Wall of Honesdale possible are available on our website www.thegreatwallofhonesdale.com. We want to thank our Patrons and Sponsors, including the Honesdale Area Jaycees, who have again sponsored a panel specifically for a student artist. Congratulations to our 2023 student artist Siena Davis, age 10.
Marguerite Fuller and Phyllis Chekenian, the directors of The Great Wall of Honesdale, would like to thank the patrons who have sponsored this project. A special thank you goes to Glenn Khoury with Encore Outdoor Advertising, as well.
