Aspiring and Serious Art Collectors Get Ready for the Annual ‘Parker Art Salon’ in East Van


From May 25th to May 27th, the 1000 Parker Street artists studio space is hosting its annual Parker Art Salon. 60 artists (of which 90% are female) will be showing and selling their works over the course of one ticketed evening event followed by a weekend-long open house. It all adds up to a unique, exciting and important occasion for the full spectrum of art-lovers.

Serious and aspiring art collectors can bid online anytime or at the studio for the Friday night live auction (tickets are $20 and up, available here). By-donation guided artist studio tours are also available and can be booked in advance if that’s more your speed. If you’d rather chill and take in the art at your own pace, then that’s cool too!

Gallery doors will be open for you to float through from 1-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. More details here.
