It can be a painting in a book store, a metal carving in a coffee shop or a photo in a restaurant. That’s what the Summer Art Walk provides as it goes into its fourth year as a way of showcasing both Revelstoke’s artists and businesses.

Organized by local artists Tina Lindegaard, Toni Johnston and Sue Davies, through the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society, the art walk pairs up more than 60 local artists with 44 local businesses.

The works are in all mediums, with painters, wood carvers, photographers, potters, sculptors and more taking part. You can find the works in most businesses in town, including retail stores, restaurants and hotels.

A brochure is available at each participating business indicating which artists are featured where.Each business has a number in the display window, indicating which stop it is on the walk.

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

The Art Walk runs until September 30.
