Open to the public - you do not have to be a CASV member to attend this event. Read about the benefits
of becoming a CASV member and the events open to members only.
New to the CASV this year, our programming for 2014-2015 will include a series of neighbourhood art tours to galleries and artist-run project spaces. Focussing in on four different areas of Vancouver: Downtown, Mount Pleasant, Chinatown and Granville Street, the CASV looks forward to its members discovering new artists and art spaces throughout the city.
Tour time: 1:00 pm start / 3:45 pm estimated finish
Join the CASV in surveying a selection of dedicated commercial and not-for-profit project spaces located in the Mount Pleasant Area. At each space the gallery directors will discuss their mandate and exhibition programming, a brief artist talk will follow, and CASV members can then take in the exhibition at each destination. The three spaces we will be visiting in Mount Pleasant will be Burrard Arts Foundation
, Field Contemporary
and Fazakas Gallery
. There are a myriad of interesting contemporary art spaces in this area, during the tour we will be sure to highlight other sites for future exploration.
