Art! Vancouver is produced by non profit Vancouver Visual Art Foundation, and is dedicated to raise awareness of the art scene in Western Canada. By playing host to a world-class international art fair in an exceptional waterfront venue, featuring reputable galleries and artists from across Canada and around the world.
