Art Walk 2011 begins Canada Day

In what is quickly becoming a summer tradition in Revelstoke, the third annual Art Walk makes it debut on Canada Day.



In what is quickly becoming a summer tradition in Revelstoke, the third annual Art Walk makes it debut on Canada Day.

The Art Walk features works by 59 artists at 36 participating businesses – the most ever in both counts.

“Everybody is really supportive,” said Tina Lindegaard, who has organized the Art Walk since its debut in 2009.

There are works in all sorts of medium – painting, pottery, photography, woodworking, stone carving, jewellery and more. Many familiar Revelstoke artists are featured, such as Nicola McGarry, who has a painting at Benoit’s Wine Bar, Keishia Treber, who is featured at Style Trend, and Rob Buchanan, who’s photography is on the wall at Valhalla Pure.

As well, there are many new faces taking part; Kim Wiggins Daniel Poisson and Julie Martel are all featured at La Baguette, while Daniel Anhorn’s  paintings adorn the Revelstoke Mountain Resort Presentation Centre. At The Cabin, Blaze Pryde’s skateboard art is on display.

Pamphlets showing the participating businesses and artists are available at participating locations. Each spot has a number in the display window, indicating which stop it is on the walk.

As well, all art is for sale – just ask the participating business for purchasing assistance.
