Anonymous Art Show seeks submissions



Calling all Sea to Sky artists—and “inspired newbies.”

Arts Whistler is bringing back its Anonymous Art Show fundraiser this year after a successful event in 2018 that raised $11,000 for the Arts and Culture Endowment Fund. The exhibit features work of various mediums on eight-inch by eight-inch (20 cm-by-20-cm) fabric or wood canvases. The catch is all art must be anonymous.

Then, at an event on April 5, buyers will have the opportunity to bid on pieces—which could belong to a well-known local artists or someone just beginning their artistic career.

Artists can submit up to four pieces by the March 1 deadline (that means delivered to the Maury Young Arts Centre by the end of the day).

Proceeds from the show, meanwhile, go towards supporting “accessible and diverse community art programs,” Arts Whistler says in a release. “These programs help foster Whistler’s arts and culture scene by supporting the artists we love to love and providing opportunities for the community to explore their creative potential.”
