On May 10th and 11th Artisans of the North Thompson Valley invite the public into their shops and studios to see and learn about the creative process, giving visitors a wider understanding and appreciation of what is involved in creating art in any form.
Art Crawl maps will be produced through the generous sponsorship of the North Thompson Communities Foundation. Maps will outline each stop on this self-guided tour and can be picked up at Jim’s Food Store or the Community Resource Centre in Clearwater.
Coordinator, Doris Laner says, “Visitor numbers have increased from the first year (2012), with very good feedback. We had 16 participating artisans last year and are hoping to increase numbers this year. Already, the community choir would like to be included with their concert at the ski hill.”
This year marks the 3rd Annual Art Crawl. The North Thompson Arts Council looks forward to expanding the Art Crawl to include communities and encourages the participation of all local artists and creative people in this celebratory event. Membership in the North Thompson Arts Council is open to everybody — supporters of the arts as well as artists and craftspeople.
