8th Annual Collingwood Art Crawl Returns in 2020
The Collingwood Art Crawl returns September 19-26, both in-person in Collingwood Downtown and online for the world to share. Spanning eight days – one day for each year of the Collingwood Art Crawl’s history – this year’s event offers ‘crawlers’ the opportunity to curate their own art and music experience amidst virtual studio tours, demonstrations, and concerts, as well as in-person at pop-up exhibits in local galleries and stores.
An Online Gallery will introduce crawlers to each registered artist and musician with individual profiles featuring artist biographies, images of current works, musical performances, links to social media and online stores, and special Art Crawl video greetings. Certain artists, ‘the Unmissable’, will also present a 20-30 minute virtual offering of their choosing, as part of a broader video series. This year’s Unmissables and the Online Gallery are generously sponsored by the Jen Scholte Team.
Crawlers can also explore the shops and boutiques of Collingwood Downtown during the week-long Art Crawl Tour. Sponsored by EPCOR and spanning the full eight days, the Art Crawl Tour invites crawlers to view the works of numerous registered artists in person in more than twenty Art Crawl venues. An interactive map will launch on the website on September 19 with details on venue locations and their artists. Venues will be following all COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
“The unique week-long approach to celebrating art virtually and in-person at pop-up galleries in downtown Collingwood, will continue the tradition of incredible creativity that has become the hallmark of the Collingwood Art Crawl”, commented Tanya Mazza, Coordinator, Arts & Culture, Town of Collingwood.
The Collingwood Art Crawl is presented by the Town of Collingwood and Butter Gallery. Alongside EPCOR and the Jen Scholte Team, the Collingwood Art Crawl is sponsored by the Collingwood Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA), 97.7 Max FM, 95.1 The Peak FM, and The New Classical 102.9.
