Crawling for Art: The Eastside Cultural Crawl

Vancouver’s Eastside Cultural Crawl takes place each fall with hundreds of artists opening their studios to the public. At last night’s opening event I took in just a few of the participating studios. Just a few still adds up to an overwhelming amount of art with everything from jewelry and furniture to paintings and sculptures, and yes some textiles were in the mix. As much as I’d love to give you detailed information on my top favorites it feels fitting to give you an overwhelming list of memorable artists. To find out more about the artists click on their images or find them in the list of links at the bottom. There is no particular order to the list.
