Art walk passports need to be submitted by 1 p.m. Saturday

There are just two days left to the wrap of this year’s art walk, says organizer Willie Dye.

There are just two days left to the wrap of this year’s art walk, says organizer Willie Dye.

“Where has the month gone?” Dye asks. “Walkers need to get their final stamps to make sure they are eligible to enter the grand prize draw.

“You don’t want to be outbid on any of the silent auction items. There are more than likely a few merchant draws that you haven’t entered.”

Saturday at 12 noon the city’s newest mural will be unveiled in Williams Lake, which he says makes us the mural capital the Cariboo.

“A sparkling new Dwayne Davis mural will be presented to the public the old sight and sound building on the corner of third and Oliver,” Dye says.

“This mural was sponsored by the City of Williams Lake, The Cariboo Regional District and the Central Cariboo Art Society.  Donna Barnett dropped by last week to congratulated Dwayne on a great job.”

He reminds shoppers that they have to hand in their stamped art walk passports by  1 p.m. Saturday to be eligible to win the grand prize.

“Make sure to vote for your favourite artists and merchants,” Dye says. “You can hand in your passports at any participating merchant.”

There will be a wrap up of the art walk Saturday evening.  Merchants and artist will get together at the arts centre in the old fire hall next to city hall to celebrate another great art walk.

The most popular artists and merchants winners will be announced during the wrap and the celebrity artist’s paintings will be auctioned off.

All the funds raised will go to Cops For Cancer.

The grand prize winner of the hand-crafted necklace by artist Geoff Bourdon will also be announced and presented.
