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

Next Friday will be your last chance to view and purchase the amazing art on display in venues in and around Baker Street.

“It’s been a record year for us,” says Stephen Fowler, president of the Nelson and District Arts Council.

“Our July opening night saw over 1,000 people come out to enjoy the art and the festivities. We had a lot of family-friendly events going on, such as ParticiPainting, which was a huge hit, and on-street entertainers.

“Sales this year have been very strong, and locals and tourists have turned out in full force to support our talented local artists. Next year will be ArtWalk’s 25th Anniversary and we’re already gearing up for a huge event.”

ArtWalk’s Closing Party, in combination with the Nelson and District Arts Council’s AGM, will be held at The Royal on Thursday, September 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by Clinton Swanson and Friends.
