Free admission, everyone welcome to attend.

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

This year, ArtRich celebrates artists with a strong connection to the Lower Mainland, and features their experiences of living in the region. The entries do not fit any specific theme, but rather reflect the diversity of our community. The 62 artworks from 62 different artists included this year were chosen by a panel of three art professionals, Nan Capogna, Paige Gratland, and Hannamari Jalovaara, and represent 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 will also feature 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.
