Call for Artists – Anonymous Art Show


Call for Artists – Anonymous Art Show

The North Vancouver Community Arts Council & CityScape Community Art Space are very excited to announce the 11th Annual “Anonymous Art Show”. This group exhibition and fundraising event will include emerging and established two-dimensional artists working strictly on unframed 8” x 8” x 1½” back stapled canvas or wood cradle panel.

Artists are encouraged to participate in this worthwhile event as it is a significant fundraiser for the many valuable community programmes, projects and events of the Arts Council. The artists are required to sign only the back of the canvas as the paintings are displayed anonymously. Each piece is priced at $100. Sales are divided 50/50 between the artist and the NVCAC. Purchased paintings are immediately taken off the wall and given to the purchaser. In its place a sold tag will reveal the artist’s name.

The opening reception and sale is Thursday, November 19 at 7- 9:30pm and the sale continues until Saturday, December 19, giving the community an opportunity to purchase original art in time for Christmas.

Show your support further and purchase your blank canvases or wood cradle panel from us. On sale now! $5 for members $7 for non-members
