Art Walk 2015 widens boundaries
The intent of Art Walk is to provide an opportunity to develop a partnership between local businesses and their customers, visitors, and Merritt and the Nicola Valley's creative community. This is an opportunity for individual artists and artist associations to market and promote themselves in highly visible venues. This years event runs from July 1st to August 15, 2015. The additional two weeks accommodates the BC Ambassador candidates that are in our community from August 10th to the 15th.
The Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce is working with 17 businesses that will work with 23 artists to showcase their creations as well as showcase their business during the six week long event. This year we welcome 8 artists from Logan Lake. We also continue to work with Williams Lake Art Walk hosting an exhibit at one of our local businesses. For the month of August we set up a Merritt exhibit in Williams Lake to showcase the Nicola Valley.
This inaugural event is brought to the community by the City of Merritt and the Chamber of Commerce.
