Interested in contemporary painting, sculpture, installations, mixed media and more? From April 19th to 22nd in Vancouver, British Columbia, you can explore what organizers are calling an unprecedented collection of original contemporary art from local and international artists alike. Last year, it was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 150 Events. In 2018, organizers promise to deliver an even more exceptional experience.
WHO ATTENDS ART! VANCOUVER?
It’s a show much-loved by galleries, artists, collectors, curators and public programs alike. Art! Vancouver is presented by the Vancouver Visual Arts Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that has dedicated this show to raising awareness of the international art scene in Western Canada.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO AND SEE AT ART! VANCOUVER?
It all kicks off Thursday, April 19th at 6pm with a red carpet Premiere party and gala. The opening includes a fun twist on your typical fashion show, called the ‘Face of Art’ runway. This isn’t about the dress; artists walk the catwalk showing off their works. The Art Show goes on each day from the 20th to 22nd and throughout that time, a number of prominent artists share their knowledge and inspire guests in discussions on the main stage.
