Nelson’s premier arts festival is back for its 23rd year. ArtWalk is calling for applications from emerging and professional artists to display original work in downtown venues in one six-week extravaganza beginning July 22.

Nelson’s ArtWalk offers area artists the opportunity to have their work viewed by more than a thousand art lovers; it gives downtown businesses a doorway into creative culture; and it’s a veritable feast for the ArtWalking public.

This cultural smorgasbord is served up by the Nelson and District Arts Council with the generous support of the Cultural Development Commission, the City of Nelson, the Columbia Basin Trust and everyone involved. Locals and tourists alike simply pick up a brochure and get ArtWalking.

Artists may contact cultural development officer Joy Barrett at cultural@nelson.ca or 250-354-9169 or visit ndac.ca to receive an application form.

Deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m., Friday, May 27.
