Emily Carr University 2 Nov 2023The Tyee

The annual Emily Carr Student Art Sale offers a chance to get to know and own the work of the city’s emerging artists. The sale will be held on campus on East First Avenue from Nov. 23 to 25 and features a wide selection of original paintings, photographs, prints, ceramics, wearable works, housewares and more, all produced by ECU students.

The event centres on student entrepreneurship by providing up-and-coming artists and designers with a public platform to showcase and promote their respective practices, while connecting personally with buyers and benefactors to help launch their creative careers. Between 175 and 225 students typically participate.

One lucky reader will win a $100 gift certificate to spend exclusively at the sale. Quantities are limited and many pieces are one-of-a-kind, so art and culture lovers are encouraged to check in early on opening day. Enter to win below.
