Items from Summerland artists are on display at businesses around the community as part of Art Walk 2014.

The month-long celebration of Summerland art features works from 39 artists at 37 venues in the community.

Art Walk 2014 began on Aug. 1 and continues throughout the month.

In addition to downtown businesses, some of the pieces are on display at wineries and at the Summerland Golf and Country Club.

Carmen McDowell, summer arts coordinator at the Summerland Arts Centre, said participation is a little lower than last year.

There are some new artists and some new businesses involved in this year’s Art Walk.

This year’s art includes paintings, pottery, fibre art, sculptures, woodworking, jewelry, mixed media, digital renderings, papier mache and encaustic works.

A map showing the participating Art Walk 2014 locations is available at the Summerland Arts Centre.

An electronic version of the map is available on the arts centre’s website at www.summerlandarts.com.
