Artists in Our Midst (“AIOM”) is celebrating 25 years of open-door artistic explorations with the West of Main Art Walk, May 27-28, 2017. In its largest-ever year, the festivities stretch from Point Grey to Main Street and from Granville Island to 41st Avenue, as a vibrant community of more than 50 artists share their works in garden studios, cafés, shops, and community centres.
West of Main Art Walk
Open Studio Tour and Sale
Saturday, May 27 & Sunday, May 28, 2017 from 11:00am to 5:00pm
From Point Grey to Main Street & from Granville Island to 41st Avenue
During the West of Main Art Walk, more than 30 studios, several cafés, and shops will open their doors to showcase the artists’ eclectic and expressive works. As the public traverse between the exhibition spaces, they will have the opportunity to venture to stunning garden studios, personally meet the creators, and engage in dialogue about their art and process.
The Roundhouse Exhibit
Leading up to the Art Walk, The Roundhouse Exhibit will offer early glimpses of the discoveries to-be-made on Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 1:000am to 9:00pm at the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre. The day-long event highlights a wide range of paintings, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and photography, and acts as a prelude to the following weekend-long art walk.
A silent auction will also be held during the Art Walk with all proceeds going to the West of Main Art Walk Legacy Scholarship Fund in support of young and emerging artists from Arts Umbrella and Lord Byng Secondary School.
