We had so many cover art submissions for Arts Scene – we just had to make it a show!
With so many talented local artists, it’s always difficult to choose just one piece of art to represent a whole season of arts and culture. So when Arts Whistler received a record number of submissions of cover art for this Winter Arts Scene, we decided to feature the entries in an energetic new exhibit: Arts Scene Uncovered.
In this latest exhibit at The Gallery at the Maury Young Arts Centre, nearly 50 local artists come together to showcase an impressive collection of art submitted to be featured on the cover of Arts Scene – your guide to everything arts and culture in Whistler and the Sea to Sky.
Come to the art party on February 6! Grab your friends and get in on an exciting art party for our community’s many dazzling local artists, have a drink and a delicious bite to eat, enjoy live music, and even help paint-by-number on a giant canvas!
In addition to prints, some original artwork will also be on display.
See a piece you just need to take home? All prints will be for sale, ranging from $50-$75 depending on size.
The art party will directly follow the Chamber Après, hosted here at the Maury Young Arts Centre – a fantastic networking opportunity that leads into a fun art-filled evening!
