Event Details

Campbell River Art Expo Society is dedicated to providing a safe and unbiased venue for all artists to show their work and enhance their income. The ultimate goal is to promote Campbell River as the premier art destination. 

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso

A mixture of expert and amateur, local and international artists and their works displayed in various mediums over the course of three days.

 Our organizing committee is comprised of people from diverse backgrounds, including fine artists, artisans, publishing, banking, marketing, promotions and reputable charitable organizations. 

A portion of the proceeds of the Expo and Gala Event will go to local scholarship bursaries through Rotary.


Rules and Regulations:

By submitting an application the exhibitors agree to abide by the rules of the C.R. Art Expo.  

Original Work Only: No limited edition prints or reproductions will be allowed on the floor (prints will be in the print store only). The artists also agree to comply with any reasonable request by show officials with regards to their displays and conduct. Artists also agree to the use of their photo’s and bio’s for promotional purposes. One primary goal for the C.R. Expo is to provide a venue for artists who work with traditional mediums to produce two and three-dimensional art in realistic, abstract, impressionistic, contemporary, expressionistic and modern styles.  The use of oils, acrylics, watercolours, inks, graphite, pastel, charcoal, conte, encaustic, tempera, carbon, gauche, coloured pencil and watercolour pencil are the accepted mediums.  

Printmaking is allowed providing the prints are hand pulled and the run remains under 100. 

The 2017 show has focused primarily on painters, but going forward we will be accepting applications for sculptures and various other art forms. Show Hours/Set up Times Set up begins at 8:00 am Friday May 26, with grand opening at 12:00 noon and opening up to the public until 5:00 pm. Saturday May 27 opens at 10:00 am and goes until 5:00 pm.  May 28th opens at 10:00 concluding at 3:00 pm. 


Booths: Exhibitors must show for the entire allocated times. As last year your spaces will be clearly marked and numbered. You will receive notification of your space number as well as an attendant will assist the morning of set up.  Each booth is 10x10 space.  Artists can apply for more than one space.  Spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. 

Cancellation/Refund Policy: Refunds will be available – less $15 administration fee- if notice is given by email on or before April 25, 2017.  Any cancellations after this date will not be entitled to a refund. 

Acceptance: You will be notified by email upon your acceptance.  If for some reason your application is not accepted, a full refund will be given. 

Sales Procedures: A very important aspect of showing original art is to promote the value of “investing” in art.  Therefore no discounted pieces will be allowed in the show.   All artists will be responsible for their own sales, except for the print store, where the attendees will accept payment for your prints.  Payment will be forwarded to the artist within 10 working days after the show.
