[ARCHIVED] Downtown Art Walk is July 22nd

It’s an event that partners select shops and restaurants  with local artists offering on site demonstrations and is presented by Wilkes Art Gallery (WAG) and the Downtown North Wilkesboro Partnership (DNWP).

“Wilkes County is rich in artists and makers,” said Ashley Barton, Executive Director WAG, “These quarterly events help showcase area artists and highlight our downtown businesses. Art is known to be central to revitalization efforts in rural communities. A University of Pennsylvania study found that small art groups in neighborhoods have multiple positive effects. Areas with higher levels of cultural activities experience a positive impact on civic engagement, youth delinquency, and a host of other factors associated with community wellbeing. Join us at the gallery for a free opening reception of the Northwest Artist Exhibit and stop by participating businesses to see the good things happening in our community.”

Wilkes Art Gallery is located at 913 C Street and is open Tuesday through Friday 10A-5P and Saturday 10A-2P. Visit and for more on upcoming exhibits and events.
