Art Walk North
What: Started in 2013, Art Walk North (AWN) is a sister show to the well established Riverdale Art Walk. Featuring only fine art, this special outdoor art festival and sale displays work from local artists. Art Walk North is a celebration of the artistic community and provides an opportunity to purchase art directly from the artists – many whom are full time, award-winning, established artists with representation in art galleries and major art shows. Hear the stories behind the art, bring the art to life and create a meaningful connection to the art and artists.
This year, Art Walk North will feature over 60 established and emerging artists exhibiting painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking, drawing and sculpture. Free and open to the public, visitors, park goers and the community can experience art all in one area over two days. Food trucks, music and buskers will add to the art experience. Last year thousands of people attended this dynamic and fun event; take this opportunity to find that perfect piece for your home and, maybe discover the “next great Canadian artist”.
