Now that the US election is over it is time to turn our attention to more local events, especially Yorkville events. Once again, you are invited to join us on the Yorkville Art Walk and enjoy many excellent works of art in Canada's premiere art scene, Yorkville. The walks are scheduled for the first Thursday of each month, except for January.
If this is your first time attending, you will find the monthly Yorkville Art Walk is an ideal opportunity to view and consider a wide range of quality originals from exceptional artists. Guests will see a broad range of styles and media with something for everyone.
See "Itinerary" below for details.
One "featured gallery" image is included in this month's update, along with an image from an exhibiting artist (Steve Wilson), who will be at Impressions Art Gallery.

A highly informative monthly tour takes place in the Yorkville Art Gallery district, giving newcomers and regular attendees a focused overview of the Yorkville art scene. This informal, free tour begins by gathering at the Rotunda (lower level) in the Hazelton Lanes Mall , opposite Browns’ Shoe Store. The attendees split into two or three smaller groups which visit selected area galleries during the evening. Each small group is led by a volunteer tour guide who is familiar with art appreciation and the local art scene. Some of the galleries may have featured artists present for the tour. A wide range of Contemporary or Historical Canadian and International works of art are available for viewing. At the end of the evening attendees may join the group for coffee at a local area café. The Artsgroup hopes you will consider this event for your calendar.
