August 13th, 2022 – September 7th, 2022
Each year hundreds of people stroll the streets of Downtown Williams Lake as our downtown businesses turn into self-guided mini art galleries for three weeks. Downtown businesses are paired with local and regional artists who work in a variety of visual mediums. From paint and sketch, to pottery and quilting, to wood carving and jewelry, and much, much more, you are sure to find something you love. Grab one of our Art Walk guides from participating locations and stamp your way towards our grand prize draw for a $500 Art Walk credit to purchase art from one of our participating artists. All ages are welcome to participate. Pick up your Downtown Williams Lake Art Walk Guidebook at participating downtown business locations.
At the time of this writing, there are still Covid guidelines in place. We will ensure that any restrictions in place from August 13 through September 7 will be followed, to keep our artists, business partners and Art-Walkers safe and healthy. Please be respectful to any businesses who may require masks, social distancing, hand sanitizer, or any other safety measures.
We welcome artists, both new and returning favourites, in a wide variety of mediums. Last year’s Art Walkers saw paintings, drawings, photography, wood carvings, sculpture, jewelry and multi-media art. For more information about artists’ fees, dates and guidelines, please click here …
