Abbotsford Arts Council hosts Anonymous Art Show

Event begins July 8 at Kariton Art Gallery

The Abbotsford Arts Council hosts its fourth annual Anonymous Art Show Fundraiser, starting July 8.

The event runs until Aug. 8 at Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.), with an opening reception on Saturday, July 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Anonymous Art Show features artwork of many diverse styles, subject matters, and media from Lower Mainland artists of all ages and skill levels.

Each piece in the show is on an unframed canvas of the same size (12” x 12” x 1.5”), and the artists remain anonymous until after their pieces are purchased.

Each piece is priced at $100, with half of the proceeds going directly to the artist and half to the Abbotsford Arts Council.

Buyers will be able to take their piece home immediately upon purchase, and a sold tag will be put in its place revealing the artist’s name.

The Arts Council will announce each artist on Twitter (@abbyartscouncil) and Facebook as their work is sold.
