After a highly successful six-week run, ArtWalk is drawing to a close. This Friday will be your last chance to view and purchase the fabulous art on display in venues in and around Baker Street, and to enter in a free draw.

“It’s been an exciting year for us. Art sales have been up,” says Stephen Fowler, president of the Nelson and District Arts Council. “Locals and tourists have turned out in full force to support ArtWalk, proving what we already knew: that our local artists are a talented bunch, Nelson is truly a city of art-lovers, and ArtWalk, with over 20 years of success, is an important and valued event for all of us.”

Budget tight? Stop by Kölmel Jeweller’s to enter the draw to win a painting (worth over $500) by popular local artist Carol Reynolds. The winner will be announced on September 15, when the Nelson and District Arts Council holds its AGM at the Hume Hotel.
