ArtRich 2019!

A Community Celebration

December 7 – December 31, 2019
Opening Reception December 6, 7 – 9 pm

The Richmond Arts Coalition was delighted to once again partner with the Richmond Art Gallery for ArtRich 2019, our third bi-annual, juried exhibition! This exhibition provided an opportunity for emerging and established artists from Richmond and nearby communities to exhibit together.

In 2019, ArtRich celebrated artists with a strong connection to the Lower Mainland, and featured their experiences of living in the region. The entries did not fit any specific theme, but rather reflected the diversity of our community. The 62 artworks from 62 different artists included were chosen by a panel of three art professionals, Nan Capogna, Paige Gratland, and Hannamari Jalovaara, and represented a variety of mediums, from painting to sculpture to textiles.

“RAC is thrilled with the record number of entries for our third bi-annual ArtRich event,” says RAC Chair Linda Barnes. “The talent in Richmond and region are hungry for opportunities to showcase their art, and RAC is happy to partner with RAG to provide gallery space for this month long show. All artists who entered will be invited to our opening night gala on December 6, celebrating the arts in Richmond.”

ArtRich 2019 also featured a set of People’s Choice awards for our community’s favourite artworks, with cash prizes. Awards will be announced by the Richmond News at the end of the exhibition.

The opening reception took place on December 6th, from 7pm-9 pm, and was open to the public. Light refreshments were provided. Opening reception photos care of Rob Fillo.
