  • 3Put on your comfortable shoes and get ready for a 4 km walking tour of art-making. For three days every July, art fills the sidewalks of Old Strathcona. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is an outdoor studio and gal-lery featuring hundreds of working artists.

    This unique event is not juried and has very few guidelines. It is open to everyone and showcases a range of talent.There is so much hidden talent in Edmonton. Its exciting to see artists come out of their shells and put themselves out there, says artist Michelle Stregger, who coordinates the exhibition spaces within The Paint Spot. "The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is important because you get to see art that may have otherwise stayed hidden in storage says Stregger.

    It all started back in 1995 with 35 artists and a few pedestrians. Today there are almost 400 artists and more than 40,000 visitors. You are invited towander among glorious florals, graffiti-style slogans, delicate etchings, mosaic butterflies and renaissance-style portraits. There really is something for everyone. It is about original art work made by local artists, says Honey Case, Art Walk's Volunteer Coordinator."Art is usually a solitary process full of introspection," she explains. "But at the Art Walk, hundreds of artists gather to see what others are doing.Itis interesting and educational to see art works develop over the weekend".

    Conversation it is not just between artists. Everyone is invited to meet theartists and ask questions about styles or techniques.

    Perhaps all this art-making has gotten you thinking about starting art yourself?"We have found some of our best instructors at this festival" says event organizer Kim Fjordbotten. She owns The Paint Spot, a popu-lar art store just off Whyte Ave. Pastel artist David Shkolny, oil paint-erOksana Zhelisko and mixed-media collage artist Carol Collinwill be teaching workshops at the shop this fall. These and other instructors can be seen along the avenue from 101 Street to 108 Street.

    For emerging artists the exhibition holds a promise of sales, commis-sions and perhaps anopportunity to be featured in a gallery. The Daffo-dil Gallery from 124 Street is out looking for 10 artists to feature in Off Whyte 13, the annual held over show. "You can vote for up to three artists and the winners with the most votes will join our top ten to make Off-Whyte 13 a wonderful bakers dozen" says Gallery owner and participating artist Karen Bishop. You can vote for your pick by tweeting @daffodilgallery and #offwhyte.

    Speaking of galleries, several of Whyte Avenues restaurants host art ex-hibitions year-round.Block 1912, The Next Act, B's Diner and Chiantis have local artists featured on their walls.This is what community spirit is all about! says Fjordbotten. Her shop hosts two artist-run gallery spaces: the Naess Gallery and the Artisan Nook. The bulk of the ad-ministrative and volunteer work lands with my coworkers, on company time and with The Paint Spots resources. It is a labour of love she says, It is amazing what can be accomplished with a handful of dedicated people. We do it to promote the artists and to celebrate the good things in Old Strathcona".
