The affordable way to start or add to your art collection.
Vancouver, BC: Between November 10 – 22, 2015, the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) on Granville Island will give both avid art collectors and new-to-the-market types, a rare opportunity to purchase fine art originals for the affordable price of $150*.
“Ten Squared” features over 150 artworks all sized 10” x 10” made by FCA member and non-member artists from both Canada and abroad. Artworks feature a variety of subject matter, mediums and styles. There are no reproductions and no giclée here, only raw pigment, brushstrokes, blood, sweat and tears.
A portion of all art sales from “Ten Squared” will assist the FCA as a non-profit charity in continuing to provide and improve the services and programming they offer to emerging artists, established artists and the public. These include educational and exhibition opportunities, networking events, professional development courses, free family holiday activities, annual international art competitions, and free entry year-round to between 18 – 20 exhibitions hosted at their gallery.
Often we deny ourselves the opportunity to claim an artwork that touched us, because we just can’t justify the expense of lavish art commodities. Yet we’re prepared to spend hundreds on things like restaurant meals and nights out. Things that live on as unvisited photographs in the album of a cell phone, things that don’t last, things that date too soon.
Do yourself a favour and invest a nominal sum for something you can enjoy often, repeatedly, daily even.
The gallery will be open from 10 AM – 4 PM from November 10 – 22nd at 1241 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC. Learn more at http://www.artists.ca
