It’s hard to believe that we’re already half-way through the summer, but there’s still one more month to take advantage of the ArtWalk in all of the five towns! You’ll have a chance to see some of the artists’ work that might not make it into the Annual Fall and Spring Show and Sales. ArtWalk is the perfect activity to share with visiting relatives and friends during the summer, and a great way to make a rainy day interesting.
What locations have you visited so far?
Otter Rafting in Sundre is hosting artist Michèle Brewster for the 2014 Artwalk. Come in and see her original paintings including western and animal themed work.
While here pick up some of the handmade pottery and jewelry that is on display. Nearly everything in the store is one of a kind. You will find we have something here to appeal to everyone.
For the more adventurous make a reservation for a day white water rafting on the upper Red Deer River. Everyone deserves a day of excitement!
On Saturday and Sunday, July 19th and 20th, drop in for the Sundre Outdoor Art Show between 10 AM and 5 PM. There will be several booths set up on the front lawn with a wide variety of artwork on display with many Wellspring members work on display.

Uptowne Olds is presenting a special evening for the celebration of our ArtWalk 2014.
Place: Olds Museum 5038 – 50 Street
Even though ArtWalk 2013 has ended for this year, people are still talking about it — and still buying art.
John Smythe relates an interesting followup. It happened while he was at the ARTember Art Show and Sale on September 13 & 14 in Airdrie. He writes:
“They (the collectors) had seen my ArtWalk display at the museum in Sundre this summer and decided to contact me to make arrangements to purchase one of my wood turnings.
“They used my business card with the Wellspring address on it and when they went to the Wellspring web site they were excited to find out from my news posting that I was right there in their home town of Airdrie that very minute!
“They were extremely pleased not to have to drive to Olds and in fact, bought two items!”
Now that’s a win-win situation for everyone. Congratulations, John.
