Spring has Sprung!

The Artists Union is relaunching and emerging from its chrysalis state...

We've just successfully gotten our website online and secured a contract with Art City Gallery to do another run of shows in 2019. In terms of needs, we're presently seeking a treasurer to anyone interested in the position with basic number-jedi-skills so get the word out. Exciting things are afoot! It is our goal to create access and belonging within the creative community by supporting artists and creatives alike in their respective practices.

Our upcoming show that we're excited about now is an ode to spring celebration and renewal with a nod to the pagan roots around the season. "It's Beltane, Baby!" An exhibition that will run April 27th through June 2nd at Art City Gallery on Dubbers st. Opening reception is 27th of April from 5-9pm with an epic after party hosted by the Art City Monsters across the street. ( IG: @artcitymonsters ).
