The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is a signature Edmonton event that connects artists with art enthusiasts. Normally 450+ artists would showcase their work over 8 blocks along Whyte Avenue for a weekend. This year, in response COVID-19 measures and for the safety of all Art Walkers, the event has moved inside the former Army & Navy building on Whyte Avenue and stretched out over 8 weekends, Friday through Sunday, June 11 through to August 1, 2021.
Each week will feature an art market of 30 to 55 visual artists demonstrate artmaking onsite and offering works for sale. Participating artists and a gallery of their work can be found at art-walk.ca. Artists are still able to register, and we expect growing excitement as restrictions lift and people return to the Avenue. With a new show every weekend, it is the perfect reason to come down to find a new piece of art for your collection and spend a summer day in District Whyte.
See who is participating this year and find the weekend they are exhibiting.
We are excited to see the artists in person again after watching them create on social media for 2 years. Edmonton has amazing talent. Art Walk is the best place to meet artists, see art, and buy a piece you love at your home or office. It is the ultimate shop local experience. – Kim Fjordbotten, Whyte Avenue Art Walk Co-Producer, The Paint Spot
