Women in Art

Some of the artists from the Women in Art show will be in attendance at the Kariton Art Gallery this month, sharing their experience and expertise as women-identifying creators through talks and demonstrations.

We invite you to join us in respectfully engaging with them as they speak, teach and show their creative processes.

Heads Up!

Anonymous - June 29 – July 30 - Call Opening April 1st!

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 3 – Sept 3 - Call Opening May 1st!

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.
