ARTWalk is an annual collaboration between Tower poets and local Carnegie Gallery artists as one of the many Arts Dundas festivities in early November. The Carnegie Gallery initiated this project in the early 1990s as a means of extending art and poetry into community life.
Tower poets (TPS members only) were invited to create poetry in response to the work of Carnegie Gallery member artists during the months of AUGUST and SEPTEMBER for Arts Dundas 2022 storefront display.
Below are samples from ART Walk 2022, featuring the work of a first-time artist and 2 first-time poet participants in the event:
