Nelson ArtWalk continues until Saturday

Last chance to ArtWalk

After a highly successful two-month run, ArtWalk is drawing to a close.

After a highly successful two-month run, ArtWalk is drawing to a close. You have until this Saturday, August 31, to view and purchase the amazing art on display in the sixteen venues from Baker Street down to Front Street.

“2013 has been an exciting year for us, as we’re celebrating 25 years of ArtWalk in Nelson!” says Ron Robinson, president of the Nelson and District Arts Council. “We are delighted to have such a long successful history, and want to thank the artists, the businesses, and the ArtWalking public who make this such a dynamic event. We’re incredibly fortunate to have the array of local talent that we do here, in and around our beautiful city of Nelson, and are proud to be able to showcase their art to art lovers from near and far.”

In addition to featuring new artists and artwork each year, this year’s ArtWalk also introduced “Poetry Lives Here”, an outdoor exhibition featuring 20 poems from local writers, which transformed the streets of Nelson into a poetic landscape.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stroll around downtown Nelson and support local artists — chances are you’ll soon own your own piece of unique art before the summer ends!
