The Whyte Avenue Art Walk will return in 2021!

The 2021 Whyte Avenue Art Walk is moving indoors to the former Army & Navy building in Old Strathcona every weekend from June 11 to August 1. People are invited to buy art directly from the artists. All artists, brave enough to share their work, are welcome to participate. The Art Walk is a non-juried event that attracts professional artists, amateurs, and students.

We are thrilled that we have found a way to continue to connect local artists and art buyers and uphold a 25+ year tradition of bringing local artists to Whyte Avenue and beyond to demonstrate their talents for all to enjoy.

The Whyte Avenue Art Walk will come back to the street in 2022

“Imagine a 4 km walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to see art making in action on the streets of Old Strathcona, a vibrant art district in the historic centre of Edmonton, Alberta. Over 500 visual artists bring their art supplies and artworks out into the streets. Together they create an outdoor studio and gallery spanning several blocks. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk reveals Alberta’s hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many undiscovered masters.” Kim Fjordbotten, Whyte Avenue Art Walk Co-Producer, The Paint Spot
