With more than 3,000 works of art, there will be 18 galleries, 7 artist groups and over 300 artists present over the course of the two-day festival. ArtWalk features original works from artists throughout the Okanagan that will include painting, printmaking, sculpting, photography, fibre arts, jewelry, film and more. For just a toonie, patrons will witness the sights and sounds of creativity from artist demonstrations and free workshops plus live music and dance throughout the two days.
