A triptych called “Floorboards,” top of the photo, and, at the bottom of the photo from left to right, “August Smoke,” “Before the Storm,” and “Snowfall #2” — sculptures of barbed wire and salvaged wood created by artist Jennifer Pulchinski. For Friday’s Art Walk, the BHive Artisan Cooperative, located at 106 Main St., will debut work by Pulchinski.

With the August Art Walk scheduled for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, here are a few things to look for at some of the galleries.

This Art Walk will be the first since construction concluded on streets and sidewalks downtown.

“Everyone’s really excited to have sidewalks this time,” said Bonnie Goodman of Mordam Art, where Parke Goodman will be debuting some new miniatures.

Also, don’t miss the results of the 10th annual plein air paint out at the Livingston Center for Art and Culture.

According to Kathy Bekedam, executive director of the center, plein air is a movement started in the 1800s by the Impresssionists to “paint what you see.” Participating artists have five days to produce as many as three paintings, Bekedam said.

“It can be very intense,” she said.
