Art Walk part of town’s 175th

As part of the town’s 175th anniversary cele­brations, the Fergus BIA Art Walk will run on June 28.

For artists, this will be a unique opportunity to show, promote, and sell works to a new set of customers. Organi­zers encourage all forms of art for this event; painting, scul­p­ture, printmaking, draw­ing, photography, jewelry mak­ing, pottery, and fabric arts.

Expectations are that artists are aware this is a family event, and to use their best judgment when selecting their works.

The show runs from St. David Street along St. Andrew Street, through to Tem­plin Gar­dens, over the bridge to the market, and con­nec­ts back to St. David. Artists will be allocated about 10- by 15-feet.

They should bring equip­ment and displays neces­sary for best showing work; not forgetting, sunshades and rain protection. A limited number of tables are available for a nominal fee. Individual insurance and security should be in place.

Set up is between 8 and 10am June 28. The Art Walk will be between 10am and 4pm. There will be stud­ents available for additional assistance throughout the day. Maps of the Art Walk including suggestions for parking will be produced and mailed.
