Vancouver Visual Art Foundation

Non profit Vancouver Visual Art Foundation mission is committed to professional development and enhancement of knowledge and skills in the arts, and to promote the education and well-being of the arts industry.

Art Vancouver, is held annually at the Vancouver Convention Centre for 4 days. We have just completed our 5th annual art fair, exhibiting 100+ artists and galleries coming from across Canada and around the world. Our vision is to boost Vancouver's profile in the art's community on a global scale.
By attracting professional and emerging artists and galleries locally and globally, we contribute to the local cultural development. A society is judged by it’s art and culture and Art Vancouver has already made a significant advance in the way our city is viewed by the art world. Our event is professional, well marketed and attracts serious art collectors and visitors from all around the world, approximately 10,000+ attendees.

The opening night commences with 'The Faces of Art' runway show, featuring the artists walking down the runway displaying their art so that guests can recognize the artists and their work. Throughout the weekend we conduct speaker series, panel discussions, live artist demonstrations, a painting competition, youth initiatives, art workshops, and a dance performance.

The arts enhance education, create connections and communities, promote health and healing, contribute to our economic strength, stimulate discussion and creative thinking.
