Heading into its third year, the Art Now Fine Art Fair has firmly established itself as a signature fine art event in the prairie provinces. Bigger than ever before, Art Now 2018 will feature galleries from Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan filling more than 16,000 square feet of exhibition space with new and never-before-exhibited works and interactive installations. Founded in 2016, Art Now is the only art fair in North America that alternates between two major cities. This year, Art Now is back in Saskatoon on September 20-23 at Prairieland Park. Mark your calendars and save the date, you won't want to miss all the wonderful things that Art Now 2018 has to offer.
“Western Canada has no shortage of professional galleries and acclaimed artists making unique and significant contributions to the national dialogue. The growth of Art Now confirms this and we can't wait to once again showcase the wonderful and often unexpected fine art that this region has to offer,” says Levi Nicholat, the Chair of the Art Now planning committee, and owner of Saskatoon’s The Gallery / art placement inc.
A growing fine art fair with a brand new website. SaskGalleries proudly announces the launch of the new www.ArtNow.ca — the site dedicated to the most distinct art fair in Western Canada. “As art fairs proliferate, we looked carefully at what made us stand out and then worked to reflect that in a beautifully designed and easy-to-navigate website,” says Nicholat. As more attendees come from outside the prairie provinces, one of the most exciting new additions to the website is a greatly expanded section on the host city, including other things to do while you are in Saskatoon, local cultural highlights, where to eat, and where to stay.
YXE and a spate of new work: With more galleries than ever before, this year's show will be “bigger and better than ever,” cites Nicholat. Art Now will boast new work from established and emerging artists, interactive art installations, and thought-provoking panel discussions and speakers. Thanks to the generous support of our primary funder, Creative Saskatchewan, we continue to be able to offer free admission for all ages throughout the weekend. Tickets for the preview and opening reception on Thursday, September 20, 2018 will be available for purchase at www.ArtNow.ca soon.
