The Edmonton Convention Centre (SCC) is proud to host Art Night on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. The free, public event will feature work for sale from over 26 local artists and unveil the newest art chosen to be exhibited at Edmonton’s convention centre as a part of its community art program.
In September of 2017, the Edmonton Convention Centre celebrated the second year of its community art program with an open call to local artists. Over 200 submissions were received from 70 artists and evaluated by a panel of judges from Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC). A total of 15 submissions from six artists will be unveiled on March 27 and exhibited at the venue for one year.
“Our walls are canvases housing the stories of Edmontonians from all walks of life,” says Richard Wong, General Manger, Edmonton Convention Centre. “We are proud to share Edmonton’s vibrant arts culture with half a million local, regional, national and international guests annually. When they walk through our convention centre, they experience what it means to be an Edmontonian, in the heart of Edmonton’s River Valley.”
All artists who made submissions to the Edmonton Convention Centre’s community art program have also been invited to showcase and sell their work during Art Night. Over 100 pieces will be on display and for sale by the artists. Art will be featured on all levels of the venue, with cash bar and appetizers available for purchase by the convention centre’s award-winning culinary team.
