“The Cornwall Art Walk is bringing a festival vibe to Cornwall while showcasing the arts culture our city has to offer. The energy of the Cornwall Art walk has been amazing,” said artist Mandy Prevost, one of the Art Walk participants. “It’s got a relaxed but cultured vibe and makes for a great way to take in different art styles and mingle with some of the members of the local art community.”
