Annual square foot show at Art Alchemy

It’s that time again – Art Alchemy Studio’s annual Square Foot Show will open Nov. 24 at 7 p.m.

The concept was simple: create an art event where a diverse group of artists can show their work together in unifying way. All the paintings in the show are the same size, one square foot, and the same price – 200$. All the artworks are an original one of a kind piece.

The show was a huge success and has continued to be Art Alchemy’s biggest annual event. We invite artists from all over Canada to take part, reaching out to our peers on the Island, in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.

It is like Christmas day as the artwork arrives and we admire the array of paintings to hang and exhibit for the show. The diversity of techniques, themes, styles and colours is always a delight.

As a special treat, we will be giving away one of the paintings. Enter a ballot at the show to win.

Many of the artists will be in attendance so the opening night is wonderful opportunity to mingle and meet the maker of your new treasured art piece.

Doors open at 7 sharp. Be there in time to view the complete collection and get the widest selection.

If crowds aren’t your thing, please come by on Saturday and Sunday between 11-5 to see the show.

Art Alchemy Studio is located upstairs, (above the United Flooring) at 362-C 10th St., Courtenay. For more information, visit Artalchemy.ca.
