While North Van Arts was closed to the public, we explored ways to safely engage with the community during the pandemic. As one of our new initiatives, we launched a virtual gallery platform to highlight selected works from our Art Rental Collection. The  virtual gallery feature is presented in a series of themed and curated 3D exhibitions accessible through our website. Feedback from artists and clients has been overwhelmingly positive. While North Van Arts programmes, CityScape Community ArtSpace and the Art Rental Collection have re-opened to the public, we will continue to offer these popular virtual galleries to highlight the work of local artists.
