The North Shore Art Crawl celebrates the talent of local artists. Each spring, artists, local community galleries, commercial galleries, and art schools open their doors to the public to display their work and share their passion. The North Shore Art Crawl is inclusive of all art forms and includes artists working in a variety of media, including textiles, jewellery, wood, pottery, graphic design, sculpture, painting, glass and photography.
This year, the 2021 North Shore Art Crawl will be a month-long online event.

A BRIEF HISTORY
The North Shore Art Crawl was started in 2011 by two local artists, Norman Vipond and Sandrine Pelissier, with 100 artists displaying their work in their studios and galleries.
In 2014, North Van Arts helps coordinate the North Shore Art Crawl and in 2015 takes over organizing the event, allowing the founding artists to return full-time to their art practices.
This event has attracted hundreds of local artists from across the North Shore, with 1000’s of visitors coming here to explore and experience art, design, and craft each year.
