Abbotsford Arts Council

Promoting local artists since 1971

Anonymous Show: Art Show Fundraiser 2017

The Abbotsford Arts Council is pleased to present its annual Anonymous display at the Kariton Art Gallery from July 8th- August 8th, 2017. Please join us at our opening reception to be held at the gallery on July 8th from 6-8 pm, meet the artists, and enjoy some light refreshments.

This show is for local artists of all skill levels and ages creating work in a diversity of styles, subject matters, and mediums. All work must be done on a 12 x 12 x 1.5” canvas, and participating artists will receive a coupon from our supporting partner House of Fine Arts, located on West Railway Street, to be given out after work has been submitted.

This exhibition is an opportunity to raise funds for the programs initiated by the Abbotsford Arts Council that support arts in our community, with half of the proceeds going directly towards participating artists. When purchased, the artist’s piece will be immediately taken off the wall and given to the purchaser. A sold tag will be put in its place revealing the artist’s name. The Abbotsford Arts Council will announce each artist on Twitter (@abbyartscouncil) and Facebook ( as their work is sold.

The deadline for submissions is June 30th. Click here for a link to a downloadable version of our application.
