Anonymous Art Show

Anonymous Art Show 2013

Opening Reception
Thursday, November 21,  7:00-9:00PM


A fun exhibition and fundraiser - shop for Christmas and choose from hundreds of original art works by established and emerging artists.

All artwork is $100 - buy art right off the wall!

The Anonymous Art Show is a popular fundraising event and group exhibition we host each year in November and December. It is truly inspiring to see the talent, scope of style, diverse subject matter and mediums, including oil, acrylic, mixed media and photography created by local established and emerging artists. There are hundreds of artworks to choose from by hundreds of artists, so there is something for everyone. All works are original, created on unframed 8” x 8” x 1 ½” canvas or wood panel. Each piece costs $100 and the sale of each piece is divided fifty/fifty between the artist and the NVCAC. The artist remains anonymous until after the purchase.

This inclusive event is fun for artists and purchasers, and it assists the NVCAC in funding many valuable programmes, including free community events, art classes and youth programmes. It also enables the community to support emerging artists and provides an opportunity to purchase an established artist’s work at a great price. We accept payment by cash, cheque, debit, Visa, MasterCard.  All purchases are final.
