From May 26th to 29th 2016, Art! Vancouver will be host to a world class art event, featuring reputable art galleries and artists from across Canada and around the world. Located in the Pacific Northwest, home to a culturally rich, historic, and thriving fine arts scene, Art! Vancouver will be held at the beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre East Building’s waterfront venue, providing a stunning and inspirational setting for art enthusiasts and collectors to immerse themselves in a wide array of juried fine art.
Art! Vancouver’s goal is to connect the international fine arts community under one roof. We want to provide both local and internationals art galleries and artists with the opportunity to showcase their collection of beautiful artwork on a prestigious platform, while exposing attendees to a vastly diverse collection of original, one-of-a-kind, and innovative artwork. As the first international art fair to be held in Vancouver, we are determined to establish Vancouver as one of the most exciting and well-known fine arts destinations in the world. Our first event, in 2015, was a great success and we look foward to our second annual fair from May 26th to 29th 2016.
Art Vancouver is being produced by Market Edge Media , with close guidance and help of Lisa Wolfin, an accomplished Vancouver artist. Her work is collected internationally by corporate collections and private patrons . Ms. Wolfin has brought world-wide exposure to many talented artists in the region through her work developing one of British Columbia’s largest fine art exhibits, housed at the private Hollyburn Country Club. Her admiration of Art Basel, known world-wide as the premiere international art show, was the inspiration for bringing that same level of prestige to the Vancouver art scene. Ms. Wolfin has the added support of another accomplished Vancouver artist, Lori McPhee. Originally from Montreal, Ms. McPhee studied ceramics and painting at British Columbia’s landmark school of art and design, the Emily Carr University, with more than 25 years of experience exhibiting across North America.
