First Timers’ Orientation and Registration for Whyte Avenue Art Walk


Are you thinking about joining the Whyte Avenue Art Walk for the first time?

The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is a non-juried event. Are you brave enough to display your work and share your art-making process? We are seeking artists who love talking about their work and are comfortable sharing their art-making process with others. The event provides the opportunity to meet patrons and earn sales. The chance to meet and network with other artists is also a highlight for participants. 

  • You must be 18 years or older to register. 
  • Your art has to meet the guidelines for the type of art exhibited at The Whyte Avenue Art Walk.
  • Artists are responsible for bringing all tables, tents, easels, chairs, paints, art work, etc.
  • First Timers are assigned locations. You do not get to pick your location.
  • Set up starts at 8:00 am daily.
  • Most artists are cleaned-up and gone by 6:00 pm.

The artist (no proxy) must attend the Mandatory Orientation Session to register for the Whyte Avenue Art Walk. (If you cannot attend this orientation, you cannot register - we invite you to volunteer with us instead. You will learn all about the event in a hands-on manner and then you will be in the lottery for Early Bird registration next year.)
