Running from Thursday, February 21 to Sunday, February 24, the art fair will feature works of art from over 300 top contemporary artists from Canada and abroad.

This gives art enthusiasts the chance to meet with artists and buy pieces directly from them.

What sets The Artist Project apart from other art fairs is that it features pieces from a wide variety of mediums including mixed media, glass, encaustic, watercolour, and oils and acrylics.

Other must-see show features are the art chats, art battle, and the UNTAPPED Emerging Artist Competition, which is a juried competition that awards 20 emerging artists from all mediums an opportunity to exhibit at a professional-level art fair.
