Upcoming Shows:

Cambie Village Massage Therapy Clinic – 3256 Cambie Street
This show is open to all members in good standing.  The office gallery requires that the paintings not be violent or disturbing.  We reserve the right to refuse a painting if it is not to theme.

In total they can put up 22 paintings depending on the size of the work.  If you have a large painting (heavier frame and glass) there are limited spots supported by a beam-embedded hook.  So make your choice accordingly. There are a few spots where large paintings 30 X40 maximum (preferably canvases) can be hung.


Please make a selection of three paintings and send the details to our email address as follows:

TITLE, MEDIUM, NAME of ARTIST, PRICE.    I shall use this information to prepare a summary list for the clinic administrator and to make labels.  We need the information by Jan 16th, the night of our next meeting. Please prepare a label giving the same information as above and stick this to the back of your painting.  If you want to stick a business card/contact info on the back of the painting that is fine. This is the individual artists' responsibility.

 DELIVERY OF PAINTINGS and PICK UP at the end of the show.

 West End Community Center Art in the City 2018 – May

 We are discussing putting together one or two tables for this weekend event.  There is a cost and it will require volunteering during the event to man the tables and complete sales.  Further information to be discussed at the social evening December 19th.
