The second Downtown Bangor Art Walk of the summer is set for 5-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, featuring a slew of galleries and businesses opening their doors for a night of art, music and creative socialization.

Opening Friday night at the By Design Gallery at 40 Harlow St. is “Reflections of Reflections,” an exhibit by 30 Maine artists sponsored by Friends of Acadia National Park.

At Java Joe’s, located at Central and Harlow streets, works by Haitian artists from the Haiti Matrix design collective will be shown and sold.

The University of Maine Museum of Art will be open, showing its exhibits “Highway of Thought: Photographs by David Hilliard,” “Elegant Darkness: Photographs by Connie Imboden,” and recent sculptures by Christopher Frost.

9 Central Street Studios will feature the work of its artists, including Sally Gilbert, Page Eastman, Andrea Hand, Tree Heckler, Deb Jellison, JoAnne Houlsen, John LeBlanc and Sergio Ramos.

Emily Trenholm, an architectural landscape painter living in Bangor, will display her work from the Down East area at her studio within the 31 Central St. building, and the Hammond Street Senior Center will show paintings and pottery by member artists.
