Abbotsford show keeps artists anonymous until work is purchased

Arts council hosts fifth annual Anonymous Art Show, starting June 29

The Abbotsford Arts Council hosts its fifth annual Anonymous Art Show Fundraiser, starting June 29.

The show runs until July 30 at Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.), with an opening reception on Saturday, June 29 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 in support of free community events, exhibition space, arts initiatives and more.

Purchased pieces are immediately taken off the wall and given to the buyer. In its place, a sold tag will reveal the artist’s name and the title of their work.

The arts council will announce each participating artist on Instagram (@abbotsfordartscouncil) as their work is sold.

Visit abbotsfordartscouncil.com or call 604-852-9358 for more information.
