ALFA Art Walk is a go

The annual Art Walk is now in its third year of operation.

This July, August and September, the Arrow Lakes Fine Art Guild (ALFA) will host its third annual ALFA Art Walk.

The organization, which has been around for more than 20 years, was able to secure funding with the help of the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK), NACFOR, and the Nakusp & Area Community Foundation.

Art Walk is a self-guided tour based on a wonderful brochure identifying participating local artists allocated to various venues in downtown Nakusp.

With 15 venues and more than 20 artists, the ALFA Guild is really proud to create this tourist product that locals can enjoy as well.

A pre-show sampling artworks will take place at Selkirk College June 15 to 30. A reception will be held on June 24 from 4:30 to 7 pm., to launch the new ALFA Art Walk brochure. The public is invited to meet and greet the artists, toast the artworks and perhaps nibble on a few appies to the sound of music.

Memberships will be available. Anyone can become an ALFA member and a volunteer to promote the arts in the Arrow Lakes region. The organization would like to celebrate the arts as a community. Everyone is welcomed to the reception.
