Castlegar Art Walk seeks artists and venues

The 23rd Annual Castlegar Art Walk will run from June 17 to Sept. 28.

The Castlegar Art Walk committee is busy organizing the 23rd Annual Castlegar Art Walk which will run from June 17 to Sept. 28. 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 2018 Walk and thanks all those who supported it: the over 30 participating artists, 25 local businesses who displayed the fantastic artwork and those who sponsored ads in the brochure.

Artists and businesses are invited to participate in the 2019 Art Walk. For more information and to register, contact the committee by email castlegararts@gmail.com or phone 250-365-3337.
