The Art Affair II Boasts Local Talent At The Vancouver Club
On July 11,The Art Affair hosted an exceptional evening of fine art, cocktails and live music at The Vancouver Club’s Grand Ballroom. Art lovers and enthusiasts were invited to enjoy an evening at one of Vancouver’s most exquisite venues to connect with local artists while viewing their fine creations.
The Art Affair II featured 17 local artists showcasing their talent in different mediums including photography, abstract art, oils, watercolours, acrylics and mixed media. Each of the artists have their own distinct stories and experiences from where they draw inspiration. Despite their differences, they have one common denominator, which is a city rich in natural beauty that binds them all together.
“My vision is to bring local artists together with art lovers, in a way that is entertaining, sociable and special,” said Annie Frind, founder of The Art Affair and Just Do 1 Thing. “Art has always been a passion of mine and in creating The Art Affair, I have found a way to share the talent that abounds in our own city with people who appreciate great art.”
A delightful evening of fine art and cocktails was accompanied by live music provided by five local artists: Chloe Anne Lloyd, Laura Reznek, Dust Rownsend, Sam Romero and Chris Sol.
The art pieces displayed at The Art Affair II were sold from $25- $4,000. With so many artists, there was enough variety and price range that allowed everyone a chance to find their own treasure.
