We are excited to announce Ely ArtWalk 2023! This year, as we did in 2021 and 2022, the ArtWalk will be a month-long event with the dates for this year’s ArtWalk being February 1-28, 2023. Artist registration is now closed for ArtWalk 2023.
This year we are offering several ways to fill out your artwork labels. We hope that this gives you all more flexibility and a longer timeframe to finish work that may still be in creation!
Option 1: Pick up blank labels from the Ely Folk School (available January 10th) for you to handwrite your artwork info. Include your labels with your artwork when you drop it off at your store location. We will have blank labels with us during set-up as well.
Option 2: Fill out and print your own labels using the downloadable PDF below. Cardstock is preferred if it works with your printer. Cut your labels to size, then include them with your artwork when you drop it off at your store location.
Artists residing in Ely and surrounding communities are invited to participate. All mediums are welcome. Artists who have previously participated are automatically eligible for entry in this year’s show.
For artists under age 18 who would like to participate separate from their school group: Parents should contact
Student Group: $0
Artist must be available to take down their work following the event (March 1-3, 2023). A volunteer will be assigned to assist you.
Artists are responsible for handling all communications and sales with customers. Make sure your preferred contact information is in your Artist Bio. The Ely ArtWalk board will not handle any sales. The stores will not handle the sales. 100% of the selling price is to be paid directly to the artist.
After the show, we will ask you to report the number of pieces sold as well as the total dollar amount collected, so we can let our grant funders know about the show’s success.
The Ely ArtWalk is dedicated to the creation, promotion, and appreciation of the arts. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and by individual and business sponsors.
