Mural unveiling wraps up 2015 Art Walk Saturday

Art Walk and Sale 2015 wraps up Saturday at 1 p.m. with the unveiling of the city’s newest mural.

Art Walk and Sale 2015 wraps up Saturday at 1 p.m. with the unveiling of the city’s newest mural on the side of Crosina Realty facing Spirit Square.

“It’s been fun,” Dye says. “People really like the variety of art this year.”

All passport entries for the grand prize have to be submitted by 1 p.m., notes Arty the Art Walker Willie Dye.

He says people can keep on walking right up until the last minute and wherever they finish up he will have a notice telling them where to take their passport entries by the 1 p.m. deadline.

As of Thursday morning he says 134 passports had been turned in and he expected many more would be turned in by Saturday.

He says one business had 300 entries in their business draw.

Saturday afternoon he says organizers will count the ballots for most popular business and most popular merchant and sort entries for the grand prize.

These winners will be announced at the wrap party for artists and merchants that will be held Saturday evening at the Seniors’ Activity centre where Blue Note will be playing.

The grand prize is a hand-made pendant designed and made by lakecity jeweller Geoff Bourdon valued at $550 and featuring a 15.55 CT Marquis Smoky Quartz with black diamonds set in stirling silver.

The work of more than 70 artists is featured at the 54 businesses hosting the art walk but you don’t have to visit all of the businesses to qualify for the grand prize.

The more stamps that you collect, the more chances you will have to win.
