PROGRAMMING UPDATE FROM ARTS WHISTLER
Art on the Lake…literally
August 27, 2020 | Alta Lake
A FREE family-friendly afternoon on Alta Lake, immersed in nature, surrounded by local art and music, in a setting perfectly designed for physically-distant fun on the water.
Arts Whistler will transform the south end of the lake into a floating art exhibit featuring docks with five live painters, and 30+ pieces on display by local artists. Enjoy the sounds of local musicians as they performed around and on the lake, as it all came together to create Art on the Lake…literally!
Anonymous Art Show 2020
The Anonymous Show has been moved to September 18, 2020.
Arts Whistler is changing up the format to comply with current COVID-19 health regulations. There will be some in-person viewings and the buying night will happen online this year.
Whether you’re in search of a piece from a highly sought-after artist or looking for the perfect piece to fill a void on your walls, the Anonymous Art Show is an exciting opportunity to buy impressive original art produced by the Sea to Sky creative community. Adding to the mystery, each participating artist’s identity ‒ whether established or an up-and-coming talent ‒ is kept secret until after purchase.
This is an annual fundraiser for Arts Whistler. This year’s funds will support our community arts programs and the purchase of new theatre equipment. Don’t miss it!
Information for ticket holders:
If you have purchased art buying spots for the Anonymous Art Show hold onto your tickets. They will remain valid for the Buying Night.
Arts Online – Local…and global arts!
At Arts Whistler, we love celebrating our local artists, musicians, and makers of all types. Many artists are now sharing their talents through incredible online entertainment, learning channels and artwork. The ingenuity is astounding!
While we’re all practicing physical distancing, there’s never been a better time to throw yourself into creative adventures and/or creative distractions. So we’re sharing all kinds of creative links, projects, performances and home-based arts activities to help keep your creativity in top shape.
