DISCOVER WHERE YOU LIVE THROUGH ART

Explore the Ambleside & Dundarave neighbourhoods by taking a virtual self-guided tour of our local galleries, public art & community spaces. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown we moved the 2020 Art Walk online! From May through June, we invited you to join us for the Virtual First Thursdays Art Walk to discover & celebrate visual art & local artists from the comfort of your home. Local galleries shared dynamic virtual art exhibitions featuring stunning work from local artists & beyond!
