Description

This year, 2017, marks the 40th anniversary of the Contemporary Art Society and our work Communicating, Connecting, and Educating about the contemporary arts in Vancouver and beyond.

This anniversary year the Society will also award a $10,000 Artist Prize to a local emerging artist who has been out of post-secondary education for 5 years or less. From an impressive long list, our three short-listed artists are: Alexine McLeod, Tiziana La Melia, and Jeneen Frei Njootli.

Join us Saturday October 21st, from 7:00pm - 9:00pm at Rennie Hall at the new Emily Carr University campus one week before the official public opening. We’re thrilled to give our guests an early look at the stunning new campus.

There is no cost for tickets and beverages are available by donation through our generous wine sponsor, Liquidity Winery.

Additional guests can register also through Eventbrite and you are welcome to forward this link to them.

The CASV is unique in Vancouver. Our activities include hosting a regular schedule of members events featuring prominent artists, curators, critics and collectors from around the world. A full list of all those we’ve worked with can be found on our website www.casv.ca.

This season we kick off a reanimated vision and strategy for the Society. We look forward to sharing more information about how the current Board will be shaping the CASV to be even more relevant for the contemporary arts.

We are a registered charity and exist through the generosity and support of our community. If you are unable to attend and would like to contribute to our ongoing success and mission donations of any amount can be made here: http://www.casv.ca/membership/.

Come celebrate with us!
