    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Modelling itself after world art fairs like Art Basel, ARCOMadrid, and Art Cologne, Art! Vancouver is back for its third installment at the Vancouver Convention Centre East from Thursday to Sunday (May 25 to 28).

      Here’s a chance for art collectors and fans to peruse hundreds of works in myriad styles, curated by founder Lisa Wolfin and sourced locally and abroad. Look for contemporary photo work, lush landscapes, wall-spanning abstracts, cool painted portraits, and more. The fair includes a schedule of special events, including a talk from 6 to 7 p.m. on Friday night on public art, featuring CBC Arts’ Amanda Parris (shown here) and the Vancouver Biennale’s Barrie Mowatt.
