Celebrating 23 years of Vancouver Art
For twenty three years, Artists In Our Midst has been steadily supporting the Vancouver Art community with their yearly open studio tours. Each year, local artists working in various mediums such as painting, ceramics, sculpting and jewelry open their doors to the public for a weekend long art crawl. The event was created on Vancouver's West side in 1993 by a group of artists and has created an important dialogue within in the community.

Over the course of the last 2 decades Artists In Our Midst has built lasting relationships between the public and artists outside the more formal museum and gallery settings. Their mandate is to promote art education and to provide opportunities for community members to enjoy and enrich their lives with visual art.

They achieve these goals by giving free public art talks and exhibits, by their volunteer art residencies and artists programs at Lord Byng Mini School for the Arts, and by including their emerging artists in the main exhibition. Artist In Our Midst is supported by merchants who showcase their art, by local donors, and by the diverse communities coming to their events.
