It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a new feature piece or a special gift, if you’re in the market for art you need to head to the Alberta College of Art + Design this weekend.

ACAD Students’ Association presents this expanded offering making it the perfect time to spruce up your home or office with one-of-a-kind creations. The public is invited to view and purchase over 3,000 pieces of handmade art from more than 200 artists. All proceeds support the ACAD student body so come see what Alberta’s emerging young artists have created.

“The Show + Sales are the largest community-building events that the Students’ Association offers. It’s a special opportunity for our student artists to share their work with the larger Calgary community and build relationships with the local creative industry and private patrons alike,” said Joel Farris, Career Development Coordinator with ACADSA, in a statement. “Each Show + Sale has a tremendous sense of creativity and camaraderie as students from every department within the school come together to collaborate and support one another. With over 200 students showcasing their work in the Spring 2017 Show + Sale, we anticipate this to be one of the most successful celebrations of student talent we’ve ever hosted.”

The sale kicks off with a First Night Fundraiser from 5:00 to 8:00pm on March 23. A great chance to get a jump on the sale, admission is $25 and attendees receive advance access to a wide variety of original artwork and the opportunity meet the artists.

Admission is by donation for the remainder of the sale.

The Spring Show + Sale runs March 23 to 25, 2017 at ACAD (1407 14th Ave. NW).
