ARTS WHISTLER’S ANONYMOUS ART SHOW
TICKETS ON SALE: FEBRUARY 20
WHISTLER, BC – Arts Whistler’s most exciting gallery event returns for its third year at the Maury Young Arts Centre on April 3, 2020. This one-of-a-kind art fundraiser brings together artists from across a spectrum of styles and experience to create incredible pieces, all in an 8” x 8” format. The trick is – all of the art is anonymous. It’s the most fun you can have choosing and buying art!
All proceeds raised by Anonymous Art Show 2020 will support Arts Whistler’s community programming and the purchase of new theatre equipment.
TICKETS ON SALE: February 20 at 12pm
Everyone needs a $20 entry fee to attend the Anonymous Art Show.
Your entry includes a glass of bubbly, delicious appetizers, entertainment and the highest energy art show in town.
New this year! Based on feedback from the past two years, we’ve added a SINGLE top spot. One excited buyer will be able to choose their piece first, free from the risk of losing their favourite artwork to another buyer ahead in the choosing. Choose the masterpiece you want for a cool $500.
Art is an additional price:
- FIRST CHOICE – $500 (New in 2020!) | 7:30pm (Only 1 available!)
- TOP 10 – $250 | 7:35pm (10 spots only!)
- $150 | 8:00 pm (up 50 spots available)
- $100 | 8:45pm (up to 50 spots available)
- $50 | 9:15 (up to 100 spots available)
BUT the evening is more than just art choosing madness! The Anonymous Show features music and entertainment, catered appetizers, a pop-up bar in the theatre, some surprise guests and newly discovered artists.
Plus, all are welcome to attend the free Sneak Peek Party on April 1 to mingle with the artists, enjoy live music, great snacks and a drink, and most of all, catch a first glimpse at the art before buying begins on April 3! The online digital gallery goes live on March 18.
Arts Whistler is calling all artists to take part!
Whether an established artist or a creative hobbyist, all artists and photographers are invited to submit their work by March 2 for inclusion in the Anonymous Art Show.
