Add a touch of beauty to your life at Emily Carr University's Legendary Student Art Sale

Nov 9 2018, 11:10 pm

It’s that time of year: The Legendary Student Art Sale at Emily Carr University is back for its 45th year, and it needs to be seen to be believed.

Whether you’re looking for unique holiday gifts, some artwork and items to bring new life to your home, or you simply want to buy nice things for yourself (no judgment here), this sale should be an appointment event for you.

Once you arrive, you’ll find original paintings, drawings, ceramics, and sculpture, along with photographs, prints, wearable works, housewares, greeting cards and more — created by more than 200 students! Best of all, you’ll discover and support the work of emerging designers and artists while you shop.

All profits from the event (minus operation costs) are kept by the students. So you can feel good knowing that all your purchases are directly supporting local student artists.

Here’s an (extremely small) selection of what you can find at the sale when it starts on Friday, November 23 and runs until Sunday, November 25. Happy (art) hunting!

There’s no such thing as too many mugs. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

We could all use a daily jolt of colour during the Vancouver rainy months.

Nothing like something warm and fuzzy to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Did we mention how much we like puns?

You can find all these items (and many, many more) at the Legendary Student Art Sale. Be there, or doom yourself to a cold, sterile, art-less winter. The choice is yours!
