History of Artwalk
In 1988 local artist and art advocate, Anne DeGrace, brought the idea to Nelson. ArtWalk has continued to grow with the number of local businesses becoming galleries providing more venues for the growing number of artists living in the Nelson region. July and August mark two months of exhibitions throughout downtown (Hall, Vernon, Victoria, Front and Baker Streets).
