Nelson ArtWalk seeking submissions

You have until April 17 to submit your application

Submitted by the Nelson and District Arts Council

The Nelson and District Arts Council is proud to host an event that has become instrumental in supporting local artists for over three creative decades.

The council is continuing its exciting tradition of having two fabulous openings for ArtWalk. The first Culture Crawl opening night is on Friday, June 26 at ArtWalk venues throughout Nelson and the second is Friday, July 31 with a full artist rotation.

Are you a visual artist who wants to be involved in this staple of Kootenay culture, complete with music, dancing, and crowds of people admiring your talent and skill? ArtWalk is for you. Let the Nelson District Arts Council do all the heavy lifting. They take care of the promotion, securing the perfect space and filling the seats with all kinds of art lovers (and customers).

If you are an ArtWalk regular, you know how easy the ArtWalk co-ordinator makes your job. The support you are given as a participating artist is just one of the reasons artists come back again and again to the ArtWalk experience.

ArtWalk has a wonderful reputation for having top quality artists in wonderful local venues. One of the best events of the summer for fun, family, culture, and beauty.
