They came; they saw; they loved it.
The fourth annual Art! Vancouver show wrapped up a great long weekend at the Vancouver Convention Centre last Sunday. As Western Canada’s largest, contemporary art show, over 8,000 visitors and more than 100 artists and exhibitors attended.
“What a good experience!” enthused aboriginal artist Adele Maskwa-iskwew Arseneau. “I connected with people from all over.” Arseneau wasn’t the only one who made new connections, particularly on Opening Night, when the fair reached its full capacity.
The attendees listened to talks and panel discussions, met artists and watched the Face of Art runway show, in which artists walk the runway with a selected piece of work. Nearly 50 people received a coveted treat: they completed their own projects in art classes taught by the fair’s artists.
Various artists’ works were sold, helping the artists gain new fans and interact with other creative professionals. “It was a great opportunity to engage!” said artist Jake Townsend.
Art! Vancouver staff were delighted by the turnout; plans are already underway for the fifth annual event, which has been scheduled for Spring of 2019. For more information, please visit www.artvancouver.net
