The Windham Theatre Guild Invites You To A Taste of Willimantic Art and Food
Saturday, June 2nd from 5 pm to 8 pm
We find that it can be very relaxing and pleasant to arrive early at a theatre and sample some of the local delights. Such is your opportunity for our Friday, June 2nd performance of Blight Spirit. Four attractive venues immediately around the theatre will remain open 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. for your indulgence. Take a stroll, view some art, have a cup cake or sandwich and then come in and see the show. It makes for a wonderful evening. Enjoy some Willimantic treasures:
Kerri Art Studio & Gallery 861 Main Street ( 1 block walking right from theatre)
In a beautifully restored 1890 storefront, the vision of Kerri Kirk unfolds as she uses color and texture to communicate in her unique style. Kerri Gallery is also host to other artists from around the globe. Great American Artists, Outsiders Artists and Illustrators have been featured in group and individual shows since opening in May 2010. Kerri Gallery brings beautiful artwork to the Windham Community for inspiration and enjoyment.
Swift Waters Artisans Collaborative 866 Main Street (across from Kerri Gallery)
Formed in 2003, this collection of art comes from 30 talented local artists. This delightful and colorful gallery has a variety of quality merchandise at affordable prices. There is something for everyone and a visit is both fascinating and stimulating.
City Side Deli 750 Main Street (across the street, half a block to the left from the theatre)
This beautifully renovated space features great sandwiches at reasonable prices in a cozy warm atmosphere. Recently opened, the deli also sells sliced cold cuts and other deli delights at very competitive prices. We have found their tables are a great place to sit and converse.
A Cupcake For Later 798 Main Street (across the street from the theatre.)
The newest sensation on Main Street! We visited a similar cupcake business in Charleston, South Carolina last month. Ours is better!! This colorful shop also creates custom made cakes, but for walk-ins looking for a beverage and great snack, this is a bit of heaven. With an assortment of daily flavorful cupcakes, cravings for a quick snack are easily satisfied.
