Hingham Arts Walk 2017

The 12th Annual Hingham Arts Walk will be held on Sunday, October 22nd   from 12-4pm. in Downtown Hingham.   Come experience the arts throughout Downtown Hingham. Meet South Shore artists in their open studios and at special exhibits.  Live music, arts demos, poetry readings, children’s activities and more. Hingham Arts Walk 2017

At Old Derby Academy, four local artists will be showing: Joan Brancale, Joan Brancale Fine Arts; Bill Hersey, Hersey Buckets; Bob Mosher, Hingham Harbor Decoys; and Jill Powell, Main Street Studios.

Main Street Studio is a small home-based art studio specializing in creating custom pieces. Nautical designs are a favorite as the owner, Jill Doherty Powell, a Mass College of Art and Design graduate and a life long resident of the South Shore, is heavily influenced by the ocean and the island of Nantucket~and a love of whales~.

World-class bird carver Bob Mosher will be roughing out birds in our Visitor Center at 34 Main Street during ArtsWalk 2017.
As a teenager in Hingham, Bob fell in love with the classic New England style decoys, and that love developed into a passion as he grew older, carved with, and learned from some of the best traditional carvers on the East Coast.
The decoys produced by the early Massachusetts carvers heavily influence Bob’s carvings. He works in northern white cedar using a variety of drawknives, hand knives and rasps and usually finishes the carvings with oil paints. The birds are then rubbed down to produce a mellow antique patina.

Artist Joan Brancale will be working at Old Derby during ArtsWalk 2017 on October 22nd. A painter and muralist with an MFA from New York University’s Tisch School of the arts, Joan is represented by Gallery Antonia in Chatham. She is juried Artist Member of the Copley Society of Art and a juried Gallery Artist at Cape Cod Art Association and South Shore Art Center.

Here are the scarey reviews

Awesome!!!! Darkness Unleashed is unbelievably fantastic. This is our 2nd time experiencing it, and it was 10 times as good!!! There are a lot of haunted attractions out there, but this one truly takes the cake with its originality. You literally SEE NOTHING and in total darkness are led only by a soft glow of a red glow stick. You blindly make your way through with everyone around you touching, grabbing, yelling, pushing you through! It’s terrifying and hilarious all at the same time!!!! The staff were helpful and professional, and all around it was a great time!!! The quality is certainly there and worth the price and we will absolutely be back next year!!! Thanks for the scares!!!

For over 12yrs I have done my best to get here every year. Between the overwhelming attention to detail in the Haunts, as well as the costume design for the actors it makes you stay on edge. My wife and I did their Bite and Fright last night, awesome food and fun for Halloween enthusiasts. Thank you Barretts. No doubt we will be back again next year.

came out on a Sunday this year. They had a great new off call Fright and Bite forYou get a decent sized meal and two haunted attractions all for 30.00 it was the best offer ever. Only offered on Sunday’s  (offer this year on Thursdays and Sundays) . There is always a long wait when you go to this house. Going on a slower night was a better idea. My wait was shorter. They take pride in giving you the best scary experience that they can. The wait is the worst part but it is worth it once you get inside. The work and detail that goes into this house is amazing. There is a new theme every year I go. It has yet to let me down.

Me and my friend came here for the first time this year. We loved it so much, we went through 4 TIMES in a row. And each time it got better and better. We will be coming here year after year. Everyone is nice, and the actors are amazing. By far the most fun I’ve EVER had. Thank you for an amazing experience!!

This place just gets better every year. Both the house and the second attraction (this year “The Compound”) are very well thought out, with characters that are both fascinating and terrifying. I screamed and jumped and laughed all at the same time – I love it!
