Young artists taking part in the 'partici-painting' station at the first ArtWalk opening in July.

Second opening for Nelson ArtWalk this Friday

On Friday, August 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. the streets of Nelson will come alive with live music, performance artists and more.

It’s time to celebrate 25 years of ArtWalk once again.

On Friday, August 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. the streets of Nelson will come alive with live music, performance artists, sand sculptors, chalk artist, face painting, Partici-painting, and more.

The evening will kick off with the fabulous Oxygen Orkestar, who will begin playing in the 400 block of Baker Street and then lead the participants in a lively march around the ArtWalk route. Keep an eye out for twenty poems by local writers that will be featured in locations along the route, part of ArtWalk’s “Poetry Lives Here” project.

This year’s ArtWalk features 36 artists, showing their work in sixteen venues from Baker Street down to Front Street. July showcased the first set of artists, and the second set of artists will be installing their work on Friday for the August showing.

Nelson’s ArtWalk’s long history is proof of its success. It offers area artists the opportunity to have their work viewed by more than a thousand art-lovers; gives downtown businesses a doorway into creative culture; and is a veritable feast for the ArtWalking public.

Brochures and maps are available at the Chamber of Commerce, Touchstones, the participating venues or online at ndac.ca.
