The summer season is about to begin and once again the ALFA Guild Society has put together the popular ALFA Art Walk for 2015.

With 18 locations featuring a wide range of creativity, this is the event residents will want to show off to family and friends visiting our beautiful area. There will be something for everyone to enjoy, from painting, sculpture, photography,  to drawing, and unique crafts. Look for our striking brochure with the handy location map, and keep your eyes open for the new ALFA Art Walk feather signs!

Selkirk College will continue with the Artist in Residence program this year and would like to welcome you to visit the participating artists while they utilize the space creating their artistic visions.  Selkirk College will also be hosting a preview exhibition of artworks by the participating artists from June 16 to  30.  Please be sure to stop in and see an overview of the talent in our area.

The public is invited to join us on Friday June 26 from 5-7 p.m. for our opening celebration at Selkirk College.  Come and enjoy refreshments and h’ordeuvres by Deb Guest Caterers, and handmade chocolates from Jennifer Chocolates. This is a great opportunity to meet the participating artists, venue, and gallery owners who support this event, and to enjoy the preview show and pick up the new brochure for 2015.


Special thanks to Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program, N.A.D.B. and to the Nakusp Chamber of Commerce.
