It’s time for one of the most sophisticated block parties of the year.
This Saturday (June 20) is the annual South Granville ArtWalk. If you’re on the hunt for that perfect piece to hang above your mantle or are just curious about the latest in Canadian and British Columbian art, come on down: everyone is welcome.
Just south of downtown over the Granville Street bridge, the South Granville neighbourhood is an area of high-end boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. (The latter include the famed Vij’s restaurant, which is near the Stanley Theatre.)
Stretching over about 10 blocks, South Granville has the highest concentration of fine art galleries in Vancouver.
They feature a diverse range of art, including Canadian and international conceptual, European modernism and old masters, and photography. There are also two galleries devoted to First Nations and Inuit work.
