12th Annual Port Moody ArtWalk, April 16-17

The weather report predicts sun, sun, sun for Metro Vancouver this weekend. For Lower Mainlanders, sun equals outdoors and in an especially sunny little corner you’ll find Port Moody. Our little town is so lovely in the spring. Flowering cherry trees, a backdrop of snow-covered mountains, and a beautiful harbour, surrounded by protected park land. ArtsConnect‘s 12th Annual ArtWalk takes place in Port Moody this weekend. The ArtWalk is a destination event for the City of the Arts and 55 artists are featured this year. Some of the venues are in public spaces, but many are in the artists own homes. There is something very special about the act of opening one’s own home…it shows generosity of spirit. Below you’ll find links to a map and photos. Below that runs a list of ceramics artists who are exhibiting this year and two videos of the 2009 ArtWalk. Click here for a map of the self-guided tour.
