Our 4th season started this week on a fine spring evening amid fresh flowers, sparkling wine glasses, soft music and black-draped tables — and one of the best and most varied collections of art we’ve had. This year 33 businesses in Didsbury, Olds, Innisfail and Sundre are taking part — a 43% increase over last year. Our reputation is definitely spreading.
It was a great evening. Business owners and representatives dropped by to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. As they browsed the work they had to list their first 3 choices. It was hard for many. A comment repeated over and over during the evening was I never knew there were so many talented people here. Ain’t that grand?
Once the business-and-artist match-ups are complete the brochures will be off to the printer. Artists will set their work up between June 21 to 25. ArtWalk runs until September 7. If you’re in the area it’s definitely worth a look-see.
