Artwalk is an opportunity for the general public to visit Calgary galleries and artist studios to discover the quality and variety of artists' work available in Calgary, and realize they do not have to travel abroad to find some wonderful treasures.
The event is free, and many venues will be providing refreshments and hosting special events. Artwalk is great for art students, art connoisseurs, and for the novice to come out and meet artists and watch creativity happen before their eyes. This event's popularity over 20 years stems from it's focus on enjoyment of the arts in a friendly and casual atmosphere.
