Description

DTES Small Arts Grants Exhibition

Exhibition Runs: May 18th–June 16th, 2018
Exhibition Opening: Friday, May 18th 6.00–9.00pm

Come down and applaud a selection of this year’s visual art recipients of the DTES Small Arts Grants Program!
In 2009, the Vancouver Foundation started a grant program, in partnership with Carnegie Community Centre, to give Downtown Eastside (DTES) artists an opportunity to expand their portfolios and to showcase their work. With an unwavering belief in DTES artists and their commitment to craft, this program awards small grants to individual artists in support of their practices.

Gallery Gachet is honoured to feature these visual artists and grant recipients! This annual event is an opportunity to shine a light on wonderful artists, their practices, and ideas. Their dynamic projects involve a variety of mediums, including fibre art, installation, jewelry making, ceramics, and painting. Each evocative work on display invites viewers to consider a range of integral, artistic perspective.


This exhibition is also part of the three-day Emerge Festival, a series of events celebrating grant recipients across mediums. Emerge Festival showcases visual artists as well as musicians, singers, filmmakers and performance artists. Over the course of the festival, June 6th to June 8th, artists will engage in performances, arts talks, screenings, and readings throughout the neighbourhood. Delightful and thought provoking experiences are in store! Locations include; Gallery Gachet, the Woodwards Atrium, and the Vancouver Public Library: nə́ca̓ ʔmat ct Strathcona Branch.
