Art Walk off the rails

Art is invading Lake Country this weekend.

The Lake Country Art Walk runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lake Country Community Complex.

This year’s 23rd annual event is expected to be “off the rails” and is expected to draw more than 7,000 people.

“The exciting Rail to Trail project taking place throughout the Okanagan this year has inspired us to have a railway theme,” said Sharon McCoubrey, chairwoman for the event.

Lake Country Art Walk showcases original works of art and live performances created by visual and performing artists living in the Okanagan. More than 300 artists of all media are exhibiting more than 3,000 original works of art.

It’s the largest show of its kind in the B.C. Interior. There will be a paint-off competition, quick draw event, children’s art activities and – keeping with the theme – model railways.
