Spring Gallery Walk / Sat., Apr. 14 (10 am – 5 pm) & Sun., Apr. 15 (12 am – 4 pm) / 124 Street
Celebrate Edmonton’s art this weekend on 124 Street. Happening twice a year, the Gallery Walk, formed in 1986, was the first event of its kind in Canada. Including nine of 124 Street’s art galleries, the Spring Gallery Walk offers a chance to see new exhibitions opening at the promenade galleries as well as a chance to (hopefully) celebrate the warming weather.
From north to south, the walk includes: Bearclaw Gallery (First Nations and Inuit art and sculpture), Scott Gallery (contemporary Canadian fine art), Front Gallery (a wide range of traditional to contemporary local artists), Peter Robertson Gallery (mid-career to established Canadian artists), Bugera Matheson Gallery (strong abstracts, reflective landscapes, and eccentric sculptures), West End Gallery (Canandian art, specifically from B.C. and Alberta), Udell Xhibitions (rising local talent and well-established artists ranging multiple media), Lotus Art Gallery (ultra-local artists), and Lando Gallery (Canadian and international fine art).
Take the route north to south and end at Remedy Café for a warm cuppa, take it in reverse to end up at Daravara for brunch or the Dutchess Bake Shop for some post-walk treats, or even take a break in the middle near 106 Avenue and have some belly-warming Thai for lunch at Numchok Wilai. The options are near limitless.
