Castlegar Art Walk seeks artists and venues

The committee is riding high on the success of the 2019 Walk.

The Castlegar Arts Council is busy organizing the 24th annual Castlegar Art Walk which will run from June 16 to Sept. 26. This successful partnership between business and the arts has focused a spotlight on the many talented artists in our community. Art Walk also provides an opportunity to buy art, discover unique shops and restaurants and gives visitors to our community a wonderful cultural experience.

The committee is riding high on the success of the 2019 Walk.

“We want to thank all those who supported the Art Walk last year; the over 30 participating artists, the 25 local businesses who displayed the fantastic artwork and those who sponsors who helped make Art Walk possible,” said Val Field of the arts council. ”Of course the Walk would not have been such a great success without you!”

Artists and businesses are invited to participate in the 2020 Art Walk. Applications will be available at the Kootenay Gallery, the Castlegar Visitors Centre and on the Art Walk Facebook page. For more information contact the committee by emailing castlegararts@gmail.com or phoning 250-365-3337.
