Golden’s anonymous art showcases plethora of artists

Kicking Horse Culture opens its new exhibit at the Art Gallery of Golden on November 17.

For months, artists have been working hard to create eight by eight canvasses featuring whichever media they chose, to display and sell anonymously at the art gallery.

The I Like It- The Anonymous Art Show and Sale will feature many artist’s work on the walls of the art gallery for the public to view and purchase.

The idea is that when someone sees a piece that they like, they can buy it without any influence of who made it, explained executive director Bill Usher. This way, seasoned artists enjoy the opportunity of working in small sizes, and it provides an opportunity for them to try new techniques. In the same, new artists can try out something and submit their pieces right alongside others who may be well known in the community.

All of the work costs the same, and makes original art work accessible to the community.

The idea for the art show came from the success of the North Vancouver Community Art Council’s long running annual Christmas art show called Anonymous.

The opening reception and sale will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 17 at the Art Gallery of Golden.

All of the canvasses will have been submitted by artists by November 12, which will give organizers time to arrange them on the walls of the gallery.
