Castlegar’s 19th annual Artwalk began last week with opening ceremonies held Thursday at the Castlegar Community Complex. The opening featured many of the artists and a sampling of their art.

Artwalk has grown and developed over the years to the city wide partnership between the business and arts communities that it is today.

This year’s walk features 27 artists in 26 venues. Artistic offerings include paintings, photography, weaving, woodcraft, fabric arts, drawings and gemstone creations.

The Castlegar News is proud to display the paintings of Shirley Miller.  At age 84, Miller is the oldest artist to participate in this year’s event.

 

Brochures and maps can be found at the Castlegar Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Centre and at participating venues. Artwork will remain on display until September 20.
