A Downtown Art Walk featuring artist demonstrations and extended shopping hours in downtown North Wilkesboro is planned from 5:30-8 p.m., July 16.

The event is presented by the Wilkes Art Gallery and Downtown North Wilkesboro Partnership in cooperation with downtown businesses and local artists offering on-site demonstrations. The gallery’s opening reception for its Northwest Artists Juried Competition is that same evening.

Any downtown business wishing to participate can provide the artist or contact Ashley Barton, gallery executive director, for assistance in securing an artist. The gallery phone number is 336-667-2841.

Crystal Keener, Downtown North Wilkesboro Partnership executive director, asked that businesses let her know if they plan to participate in the Art Walk so she can promote their involvement. She can be reached at tourism@north-wilkes boro.com or 336-667-7129 ext. 3021.
