Artist Project is an art lover’s dream! Now in its 13th year, the four-day contemporary art fair gives visitors the opportunity to meet and purchase work directly from artists.

This year’s fair will feature over 300 independent contemporary artists from Canada and abroad working in a variety of mediums, including mixed media, installation, painting, photography, and zine. Other highlights throughout the weekend include a live painting competition; themed guided art tours, where you can meet the artists and learn about their inspirations and creative processes; the Art Chats panel and discussion series led by experts from the art and design world; and the UNTAPPED Emerging Artists Competition, which awards 20 up-and-coming artists with the opportunity to exhibit at a professional-level art fair.  

Artist Project kicks off Thursday, February 20, with the Opening Night Party (purchase tickets here) and continues through February 23 at Exhibition Place’s Better Living Centre (195 Princes’ Blvd.). Admission ranges in price from $12.50 to $16 (children 12 and under are free).
