About the 2022 North Shore Art Crawl:

The 2022 North Shore Art Crawl will return to an in-person weekend event! Visitors can book scheduled visits on Friday, March 4 and explore open studios on the weekend of March 5 & 6. This is a great opportunity for local visitors to reconnect with the talented artists of the North Shore. All free, all weekend.

In its 12th year running, the North Shore Art Crawl celebrates the talent of local artists with galleries, community centres, businesses, and art schools inviting the public to see the works of artists and learn about their passion. Artists showing work in a variety of media, including textiles, jewellery, pottery, graphic design, sculpture, painting, glass, and photography make this annual event memorable and unique.
