ArtWalk Opening Night Friday

Opening Night is Friday, June 28th from 6 - 9 p.m. 17 of the 18 venues will be open.

The Nelson and District Arts Council is thrilled to announce the 31st annual ArtWalk. ArtWalk has become a highlight of the arts & cultural season offering the community a free event that showcases the work of local artists in business galleries.

This year’s event hosts over 35 artists in 17 venues downtown and down to the waterfront.

Opening Night is Friday, June 28th from 6 - 9 p.m. 17 of the 18 venues will be open (the Nelson and District Youth Centre will not be participating as their renovation have run long) showing artists will be on hand to chat about their work.

ArtWalk will have roaming performers visiting the venues and performing on the streets. Look for harpists, saxophone players, hang drummer, hula hooper, dancers, singers, musicians, and more.

The schedule of these performances will be posted on the ArtWalk Nelson facebook page a few days before this opening.

The Nelson and District Arts Council wants to thank the business community for their continued support of ArtWalk. The venues open up their spaces and their walls in support of the local arts community and we couldn’t continue this event without that support.

ArtWalk is supported by our generous sponsors the Province of British Columbia, the BC Arts Council, Regional District of Central Kootenay, Nelson and District Credit Union, Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism, the City of Nelson and Columbia Basin Trust.
