There’s No Better Way to Celebrate Local Artists Than with an Art Party!

There’s No Better Way to Celebrate Local Artists Than with an Art Party!

On February 6, grab a friend and come on out to a free evening of art, hang time with the artists, a giant paint-by-number, tasty snacks and rad live music at the Arts Scene Uncovered Art Party.

Over here at Arts Whistler, the stoke is high for Arts Scene Uncovered. It’s the newest exhibit in The Gallery, showcasing the broad range of work submitted by local artists to be featured on the cover of the new Winter Arts Scene magazine. With so many talented artists around these parts, it’s always difficult to choose just one piece of art to represent a whole season of arts and culture, so we decided to feature the entries in this energetic new exhibit!

To celebrate we’re throwing a huge art party in The Gallery at the Maury Young Arts Centre on February 6, and you’re invited!

Come hang out with the artists, including the Winter Arts Scene cover artist, Meghan Spence. Enjoy delicious appies and a drink as you groove to the live music, and even help fill in a giant paint-by-number recreation of Meghan’s piece, “First Tracks.”

Discover for yourself the wide array of amazing art created right here in our mountain community, and why picking just two to be featured on Arts Scene was quite the challenge!

In addition to prints of the cover art submissions, there will also be some original artwork on display, as well as prints of all previous Arts Scene cover art.

Found a print you just can’t live without? You’re in luck! All prints will be for sale, ranging from $50-$75 depending on size. Plus, check out our gift shop downstairs for even more great local art that you can take home.

The evening is free to attend, so make sure to bring a friend… or ten… and get in on all the fantastic art action going down at the Arts Scene Uncovered Art Party. See you there!
