STAMFORD, Conn. — Downtown Stamford hosted Artwalk 2016 — the city's annual art party — on Friday evening, with art fans strolling the downtown streets to see exhibits in a number of participating galleries.

Seven different galleries displayed artwork and hosted artist receptions. Visitors to the downtown area also enjoyed live music and dancing — along with plenty of food.

"There's different types of art all mixed together, so I think that makes it an interesting exhibit," Anna Pomaz, of Stamford, attending with family, told Daily Voice. "There are some interesting things for young people, so I think it's a great idea. We've seen three (galleries) already, all close by. And we have nice weather, so I think it's great."
