Are you an artist looking to sell and showcase your work?
The Art Walk is a non-juried event that attracts professional artists, amateurs, and students. Over 450 artists display more than 6000 pieces of art over the 8 city blocks along Whyte Avenue in Old Strathcona over the 3-day event. People come to view the artmaking, meet the artists, and buy art directly from the artists.
Guidelines for Registration
Each display must be ORIGINAL artwork. Artists are encouraged to create art at their spot.
One-of-a-kind work will be accepted in the following mediums:
– Oil painting

Artists are fully responsible for bringing all display material, including tables, easels, chairs, paints, ways to accept payment etc. The event goes rain or shine and we ask that artists exhibit for the entire weekend.
In 2022 our prices were $200+GST for a tent space (10’x 10′), $100+GST for a table (5′ x 8′). Prices are for the weekend. We place you based on your preference and a first come, first served basis as best we can.
