Over 150 artists at 69 locations
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, jewelry, wood, pottery, graphic design, sculpture, painting, glass and photography.
In its thirteenth year running, the North Shore Art Crawl partners with local galleries, community centres, businesses and art schools to invite the public to celebrate the talent of local artists by viewing their works and learning about their passions. This annual event is made memorable and unique by the wide range of media displayed by the artists, including textiles, jewelry, pottery, graphic design, sculpture, painting, glass and photography.
This year over 150 artists will be exhibiting their work at 88 locations across the North Shore, from Lions Bay to Deep Cove.
