The West Vancouver Community Arts Council invites visual artists to submit work for our 2019 Exhibition Adjudication for the Silk Purse Arts Centre.

Submission is open to emerging & professional artists working in any medium. We are looking for art that reflects & examines our community & the vast world beyond, that presents new ideas & thought provoking concepts while encouraging creativity & diversity. Our mission is to encourage & foster the Arts in our community by providing artists a unique & popular space to exhibit their work, by making art by local artists accessible to the public & by exposing West Vancouver to artists from other communities.

Selected artists will be scheduled for a 3 week group or solo exhibition at the Silk Purse Arts Centre in 2019.
