Art Walk


Gallery One-Twenty-One and our 20 eclectic, and artistic Partners are excited to be hosting Four Downtown Art-Walks; one in each of the months of June, July, August and September.

These evenings will be a sensory feast! The public will be invited, free of charge, to experience a range of activities including listening to live music, participation in artistic workshops (ever wanted to try your hand at collage making,, sketch a live model, water colour?) Artists in such areas as dance, music, vintage clothing, antique furniture, home decorating, art therapy and design will tickle your fancy and encourage your own creativity through workshops, demonstrations and talks.

Top your evening off with a walk through Gallery Openings with special featured guests, or watch an artist in action in one of the participating locations.

No sensory experience would be complete without mouth-watering local foods offered with an “artistic “flare; these specialties will be for sale at participating restaurants.
