The 18th Annual Riverdale Art Walk Showcases Local Artists in Jimmie Simpson Park
While you’re at Riverside Eats & Beats Streetfest on June 4th, head over to the easterly end of the neighbourhood to Jimmie Simpson Park for the 18th Annual Riverside Art Walk. Hosted by the Artists’ Network, the Riverdale Artwalk is bigger and better than it has ever been before, with over 180 established and emerging artists exhibiting painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, and sculpture.
The event is free and open to the public who are able to experience art all in one area over the Riverdale Art Walk’s two days (June 4 & 5). Get the unique chance to discuss art with local artists and find that perfect piece or two to take home and make your own.
