Join the art walk by bike Saturday

This Saturday, the special event for the 2014 Art Walk and Sale is a guided bicycle tour of the the art walk venues.

A special tour of the 2014 Art Walk by bike has been arranged for this Saturday, Aug. 23 starting at 12:30 p.m. from Red Shreds on First Avenue.

The tour will last two to three hours and offer great exercise, great art and great shopping says Arty the Art Walker (Willie Dye) who is reved up and ready to ride.

Tickets will also be available for the art draw fundraiser for Cops for Cancer.

The art walk began August 7 and wraps up September 6 featuring the work of 52 artists paired with local businesses for display.

Artists from Bella Coola, Merritt, Sun Peaks, Horsefly, Kelowna, Hornby Island are joining artists from Williams Lake and area in showing their work during the walk.

Twenty two of the artists will be showing their work for the first time on the art walk.

There are great prizes to be won, great murals to see and a great opportunity for exercise, say organizers.

As in past years there will be a silent auction of art happening during the walk.

Plan on participating in the people’s choice award selection and enjoying some busking from local musicians at various times during the art walk.

This year the grand prize is a beautiful necklace, handcrafted by local jeweller Geoff Bourdon.

It is a 24.04ct rutilated quartz in a handmade sterling silver setting.

For complete details on participation, pick up one of the Art Walk booklets that are now available at various locations around the city.
