Celebrating Art

Troy Nickle demonstrating clay sculpture, Art Walk 2010


Many artists in southern Alberta create wonderful 3 dimensional pieces using a wide variety of styles, media and themes. The Galt Museum & Archives will, for the fourth year in a row, host an exhibition called 3 Dimensions during the 2011 Art Walk.
At this time, artists are invited to submit a piece of their artwork for consideration in the exhibit. Submissions must be received by September 2, 2011. For further information please contact wendy.aitkens@galtmuseum.com.

The weekend during Art Walk will be a hopping good time at the Galt. The Saturday will be a free day for everyone during which 3 Dimensions will be on display and a special exhibit called Toys & Games ~ engage, entertain, educate will open. Activities will occur all through the days including demonstrations by local artists. These artists will talk to visitors as they create their 3 dimensional art. No admission is charged on Friday and Sunday for those interested in seeing 3 Dimensions.

Art Walk will be held during Art Days in the fall. The exhibit will run from September 30 to October 2; 10 am to 4:30 pm Friday and Saturday and 1 to 4:30 pm on Sunday. Plan to join the Galt as we celebrate local artists and their creations!
