To get a true inside look into the amazing art happening in Vancouver’s east side—or to shop for a truly unique gift for the holidays—take advantage of the annual Eastside Culture Crawl, a FREE arts festival happening throughout Strathcona, Chinatown, and the Downtown Eastside.

During the Eastside Culture Crawl,  300 artists’ studios are open to the public, showcasing an array of local arts, from sculpture and painting to clay, fashion, jewelry, furniture, and photography.

Because the artists’ studios are spread out throughout the east side—roughly from Main St. to Victoria Drive, bordered by 1st Avenue to the south and Waterfront to the north—I suggest studying the artists before venturing out: to guarantee that you’ll see work you’re interested in, take time to browse the complete list of participating artists and studios. You can also download a map of all studios online here.

For those who want to learn more, there’s a FREE guided tour on Saturday morning: Executive Director Jeffrey Boone will meet interested participants at the Wilder Snail (799 Keefer Street) to take a walking tour of four featured studios as an introduction to the diversity of work on display during the Crawl.

The Eastside Culture Crawl 2010 runs from 5pm – 10pm Friday, November 26, and 11am – 6pm on Saturday & Sunday, November 27 – 28.
