Greater Sitka Arts Council to host annual Fall Art Walk on Friday, Nov. 23

The Greater Sitka Arts Council will host its annual Fall Art Walk from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, at several businesses in downtown Sitka.

The free art walk will give people a chance to see new art work, visit with your neighbors, and maybe get an early gift idea for the holidays. Friday, Nov. 23, is a sales tax holiday in Sitka, so you won’t have to pay tax on any art you buy.

The Greater Sitka Arts Council will distribute its regular passports at the event (there is a $2 requested donation to participate). Once people fill their passports from stamps at all of the participating galleries, they can return to the Goldsmith Gallery or Beak restaurant to be entered into a drawing to win $100 cash from the GSAC or $25 gift certificates from Beak or Bev’s Flowers & Gifts. The drawing takes place on Nov. 30.

Here are highlights from some of the participating businesses:

More galleries and artists may be added later. For more information, contact thinkartthinksitka@gmail.com.
