Encounter with SculptureWalk artist makes Castlegar visit that much better

Last week my husband and I visited Castlegar to do some shopping and, most importantly, to look at the SculptureWalk entries for this year. While we were gazing at one of the sculptures, a man carrying a bag approached us.

Last week my husband and I visited Castlegar to do some shopping and, most importantly, to look at the SculptureWalk entries for this year. While we were gazing at one of the sculptures, a man carrying a bag approached us.

We were initially wary, but much to our surprise the man said that he was a local artist who was pleased to see that we were enjoying the art and that he would like to give us a small gift.

Reassuring us that there was no advertising on the gifts, he presented each of us with a lovely bookmark with a picture and quotation on it. This simple gesture of welcome and appreciation really made our day!

Kudos to the City of Castlegar for supporting the work of artists through SculptureWalk and Art Walk and a very special thank you to the anonymous artist for his random act of kindness.
