The 13th Annual Riverdale Art Walk is a two day, juried fine art exhibition open to all. We showcase established and emerging artists in retail spaces, artists’ studios and in Jimmie Simpson Park. We select artists through an anonymous juried process that does not discriminate on any basis. The Riverdale Art Walk is the first outdoor show of the season and we continue to have the lowest participation fees in the outdoor arts festival circuit.

Speaking to Galleries and Patrons

Speaker: Nicola Rudzick
