Nanaimo Fine Art Show

September 29, 2023 @ 9:00 am - October 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

free entry

The Nanaimo Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists is pleased to once again host the 7th annual “Nanaimo Fine Arts Show”. This event will begin with an invitation-only Grand Gala and Awards evening where artists will be in attendance to greet sponsors and collectors. Our 2016 inaugural event showcased 82 professional artworks from across the Island, including artists with international status. The success of that show resulted in even more submissions to the 2017 jury and a 40% increase in attendance to approximately 700 people with 95 paintings showcasing the talent of Island artists. With each successful event the chapter has hosted, attendance has increased with over 1000 people attending in 2022 and the number of accepted pieces growing to 125 juried-in last year out of several hundred total submissions. Our long-term vision is to have this event become a “must-see” exhibition such as those hosted in Sooke and on Salt Spring Island, becoming a major cultural event for Nanaimo.
