ESG @ THE ART WALK 2017

At Executive Spa Group, we love being on Whyte Ave/Old Strathcona. Our neighborhood plays host to many events that bring the community together. One of our favourites is The Whyte Avenue Art Walk. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk takes place from July 7-9; 10AM-5PM. Check out the details by clicking HERE. In fact, our walls are decorated by former Art Walk artist, Taara Smith. This year, we went out with our Beautiful Futures Class 2017 Face and Body Waxing & Tinting focus to enjoy the beautiful outdoor gallery. Here are some of our favourites of 2017: Patrick Markle Neelam Chattoo Jamie Pruden
