Anonymous Art Show 2020 Online Fundraiser and Sale
CityScape Community ArtSpace & Online
November 26 - December 19

We are thrilled to host this group exhibition showcasing original artwork of 250 emerging and established artists. Hundreds of 8″ x 8″ artworks fill the gallery walls for a poetry of colour, expression, and creativity. As one of the sectors that have been most affected by COVID-19, the arts need your support now more than ever. Support your local art community with every $100 artwork you buy! 
The proceeds from this festive fundraiser provide significant support to ongoing North Van Arts’ programmes and projects while also showcasing local artists in the community. The artists remain anonymous until their work sells for $100 each, with the artist and North Van Arts each sharing 50% of the sale. Once a painting is purchased, it is removed from the wall and replaced with a sold tag, revealing the artist’s name.
The 2020 edition has been adapted within our COVID-19 Policy and Procedures to ensure the safety of artists, our staff, volunteers, and visitors. The exhibition will be installed at CityScape Community ArtSpace, with viewing and purchasing happening online. 
November 20 update below from recent Provincial Health Order.
