Heads Up!

Anonymous - June 29 – July 30

Coming late June is our yearly fundraiser “Anonymous.” This exhibition is an opportunity to raise funds for the programs initiated by the Abbotsford Arts Council that support arts in our community. All work must be done on a 12x12x1.5”canvas with each piece being priced at $100. Half of the proceeds go directly towards participating artists.

Say it With Flowers – Aug 3rd – Sept 3rd.

Once again the Abbotsford Arts Council will be having our “Say it With Flowers” exhibition and want to give everyone interested lots of time to prepare. Your sculpture, metalwork, textile art, painting, photography, print media, or even floral arranging will all be eligible to apply.

All work must be priced within the $25, $50, $75, $100 categories with the artist receiving a 50% commission on sold work.

Stay Tuned for our Open Call Coming Soon!
