The Castlegar Arts Council is proud to sponsor another fabulous all-in-one Art Walk throughout Castlegar.

Art Walk’s opening celebration is tonight at 7 p.m. at the Castlegar Rec Centre on 6th Ave.

Everyone is welcome to enjoy live music, refreshments and a chance to mix-and-mingle with Art Walk artists.

Volunteers on the Art Walk committee have this to say about Castlegar’s Art Walk: “It’s a wonderful pooling of artistic resources that creates a real focus on the arts, attracting visitors and locals and showing them what we are all about; a community of diversely talented people, with warmth, pride and integrity.”

Castlegar businesses and residents as well as returning tourists are looking forward to seeing what our artists have created and the Castlegar Arts Council is happy to be coordinating this event which showcases our community’s artistic talent.

Leni Normington, Arts Council president mused that this year is special for Art Walk: “Castlegar’s Art Walk was nominated for a Chamber of Commerce Tourism Development Award this year, evidence of how popular with businesses and visitors our Art Walk has become after 19 years.”

With 26 artists displaying in business venues throughout the community and a self-guided tour brochure, Art Walk showcases the very best of local art talent and many of these unique pieces sell quickly.

It’s a great opportunity for those addicted to buy one-of-a-kind art. Treat yourself and your visitors to an evening of artistic adventure, meet the artists and celebrate Art Walk 2015.
