The Art Walk 2012 wrapped up in Williams Lake Saturday evening with the announcement of various winners at the Station House Gallery.
“It was a good event,” says art walk committee chair Willie Dye. “The silent auction was a runway.”
He says the silent art auction proved to be a popular promotion for the artists with more than $9,500 worth of art being sold this year.
“To my knowledge this is an art-walk record,” Dye says.
The grand prize draw winners were Willie Orango winning $300; Wilbur Saunders winning $200; and Laurianne Robbins winning $100.
The winners of the most popular artist award were Reva Schick winning the gold medal; Liz Twan winning the silver medal; and Harvey Overton winning the bronze medal.
The winners of the most popular merchant award winners were Frame Creations by Bruce winning gold; J&E Gifts and Treasures winning silver; and Eloquence Spa and Salon winning the bronze.
Dye says another exciting event this year was an art walk video created by John Dell at johndel.ca which features all 46 merchants and artists.
