ART WALK’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY W

hyte Avenue Art Walk turns 20—can you believe it? What began as a simple idea put forth by Old Strathcona Foundation member Tim Nolt is seeing its 20th year. Inspired by the left bank in Paris and street-easel artists of Europe, Art Walk was able to come to fruition thanks to Sidsel and David Bradley, owners of The Paint Spot. Whyte Avenue was the perfect location to host such an event as it had pedestrian-friendly walkways, boutiques, parks and restaurants, and the Paint Spot had the resources and artists to craft it. In its inaugural year, Art Walk displayed the work of 30 artists. Now, the Art Walk has matured into a three-day event hosting more than 450 artists and spanning across eight blocks—and it's only growing year after year. This year's festival features the creation of a new mural on the Varscona Hotel on Whyte Avenue by Edmonton-born artists Layla Folkmann and Lacey Jane, and a graffiti competition (Aerosol Arena). For 20 years, Art Walk has occupied a unique niche in Edmonton's rich arts community by providing local artists a place to showcase their work. And for 20 years, Art Walk has received so much support from artists and fellow Edmontonians, so thank you. Here's to the next 20 years!

hyte Avenue Art Walk is taking graffiti out of the streets and into the mainstream—all legally, of course. This year's Art Walk will feature the first instalment of Aerosol Arena, (located on Gateway Boulevard and 83 Avenue), a graffiti-art competition that puts Albertan artists, all representing different crews, head-to-head for swag and bragging rights while providing a legal space for them to showcase their work. "Aerosol Arena celebrates and shares the beauty of street art and graffiti, showcasing the amazing work of some of Edmonton's best-kept secrets," says local graffiti artist and Aerosol Arena organizer AJA Louden. "By providing a legal space for these artists to create work and for the public to enjoy, we

prawling across the wall of the Old Strathcona Centre for Performing Arts (8426 Gateway Blvd) is a historic mural created by Grande Prairie’s Tim Heimdal for the inaugural year of Whyte Avenue’s Art Walk back in 1995. The mural was made possible by a $2000 endowment after the death of former alderman Gerald “Gerry” Wright and crowdfunding—a person could pay $500 to have his or her portrait added to the mural; $250 got you a profile in it.

In honour of Heimdal’s mural and the 20th anniversary of Art Walk, contemporary painters Lacey Jane and Layla Folkmann will create a mural—21 feet by 113 feet—on the back wall of the Varscona Hotel. Jane and Folkmann hope to create an art piece that celebrates what Art Walk is about by bringing the beauty of easel painting to the street. For Jane and Folkmann, “This project is a celebration of art for art’s sake—an opportunity for an esthetic invasion in the heart of Edmonton’s vibrant,

can foster new relationships and artistic connections between communities." These new relationships, between graffiti artists and local community members are crucial in changing the local—and global—perspective of graffiti. “Edmonton is all about grassroots leadership in support of street art” says Kim Fjordbotten, owner of The Paint Spot and Art Walk organizer. “The Edmonton Arts Council is supporting free wall in Old Strathcona and the art community is embracing it. The free wall has inspired a gathering of talent. The Aerosol Arena will be unique. It is a chance for local street artists to shine and demonstrate their talent. It will be a must see event.”

active and ever-artistic Old Strathcona district. This project is dedicated to the act of painting, the joy of brushwork and brilliance of colour.” The mural pays homage to the vibrancy, energy and creativity of Edmonton. By incorporating a female character into the painting, the mural celebrates women in the arts by shedding a light on the strength of female artistic accomplishments, which is often overshadowed by male dominancy in the industry.

Some of the artists competing in Aerosol Arena are Zodiak, Kevr, Spek, Curly, Rast and more. Prizes will be awarded by popular vote and all finished pieces can be purchased during Art Walk. "This event is not only about the visual aspects of street art, it is an immersive experience illustrating the ways street art interacts with our city, the people in it and other art forms," says Michael Feehan, communications director at the Creative Clubhouse. "Art Walk is a celebration of many forms of art with artists from vastly different backgrounds coming together and building a community," Louden adds. “Having a home for [graffiti art] at the Art Walk just makes sense."

Both Jane and Folkmann were born and raised in Edmonton and attended the fine art program at Grant MacEwan in 2007. Currently, Jane and Folkmann are working towards bachelor's degrees in painting and drawing at Concordia University in Montréal. They’re the only two females working with A’Shop, a creative organization specializing in public art and live painting performances. Jane and Folkmann debuted their work together at the Art Walk in 2009.
