The Riverdale Art Walk 2016
Jimmie Simpson Park & Community Centre
Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th, 2016, 11am to 6pm
For 18 years the Artists’ Network’s Riverdale Art Walk has been featuring local artists in an outdoor festival. This year The Riverdale Art Walk was bigger and better than ever and featured over 180 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 were able to experience art all in one area over two days. The perfect weather made it easy for thousands of visitors to discuss art with the artists and find that perfect piece or two to take home and make their own.
