AxA Call for Artists!
June 24, 2015
The Metro Vancouver Chapter of the RAIC is proud to launch the first Art by Architects (AxA) Auction, a group exhibition and fundraising event that celebrates the artistic talent of emerging and established architects and designers to raise money for charity.
AxA is an art exhibition and charitable auction showcasing original 10″x10″x1.5” works on unframed wood panels. This year’s theme is “archKIDecture”. Artists will get creative and interpret the theme through various forms of media.
Save the date! An opening reception, held at the AIBC Gallery (100-440 Cambie Street, Vancouver) on September 17, 2015, at 5:30 p.m. will kick off the event. All artwork will remain on display until November 5, 2015!
Artists are encouraged to participate in this worthwhile event, as it is an important fundraiser for Architecture for Kids. Architecture for Kids, in partnership with the North Vancouver Artists for Kids Trust and RAIC Metro Vancouver Chapter, brings together local architects and K-12 students. The students, through hands-on studios, learn more about the power of architecture and the elements that make it an asset to our communities.
Art by Architects is supported by the Architectural Institute of British Columbia and Opus.
