Art at the Fingertips in Huntington Village

Huntington Village put art on display Saturday with the Huntington Public Art Crawl.

Designed to show the economic value of the culture in Huntington, the festival had displays of artwork, music, pottery, murals and more. Though most of the vendors were set up on Wall Street, others could be found at The Agency offices on Main Street, the alleyway next to Value Drugs and elsewhere nearby.

“As a Chamber of Commerce, our goal is to support all businesses while attracting tourism to the town and this crawl is a fantastic way to do so,” the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce said.

Jeanine Marie Aufiero  had numerous landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes and musicians, on display at the Agency.

Akosua, a Connecticut-based artist had a booth featuring richly hued images of  people and butterfly designs. She described how, when she was a child, a teacher tried to dissuade her from following a career in art, saying she wouldn’t be able to make a living. But she persevered and now runs Akosua’s Wonderful World of Art.

About 30 vendors were on hand.
