For three days each fall, hundreds of artists who live or work in Vancouver's artist-dense Eastside open their studios to the public for the Eastside Culture Crawl. The event incorporates artists in almost every field—from weavers, furniture makers and jewelers, to painters, photographers and sculptors—and features emerging artists as well as names that are recognizable on the world stage.
This is a great time to see a lot of work in a short amount of time, as well as to talk to people about their creations and techniques all within the intimate setting of their workspace. Works can be purchased directly from the artists, or if you are interested in having something created that is unique, most artists are willing to discuss having work commissioned.
The Crawl starts on Friday, 16 November 2007 at 5pm and goes until Sunday, 18 November 2007 at 6pm. For more information and a full map of the venues, check out their website.
