Artists and business representatives hosting the 2015 Art Walk and Sale gathered at the Seniors’ Activity Centre Saturday evening for a wrap-up party and announcement of the various art walk prize winners.
A total of 209 art walk passports were turned in to qualify for the grand prize draw of a necklace valued at $550 designed and created by Geoff Bourdon for the BIA’s art walk project.
“It is a very big number for a small town,” said Arty the Art Walker Willie Dye in announcing that 10 per cent more people participated in art walk this year than last year.
More than 70 artists were hosted on the walk by 54 businesses.
Bourdon made the draw for the pendant and called Gail Lucier to tell her she was the winner.
People’s Choice Merchant Award went to J&E Gifts in first place; Laketown Furnishings in second place; and The Bean Counter in Third Place. People’s Choice Artist Awards went to Bobby Crane in first place; Marlene Pegg in Second place and Brian Garten in third place.
