ABOUT THE ART HIVE COLLECTIVE
This Canadian Online Art Gallery started with a desire to promote local artists in the Fraser Valley. I have expanded the reach to include artists across Canada.
As a photographer, I have attended many markets as a vendor, selling my photographs on wood. It is a lot of work and a very long day.
Having a physical art gallery for artist to show their work and give artists some permanency. To be a part of a community of other artists. A place to have workshops and share their knowledge.
For visitors of the gallery, a place where the public can browse new artist or artists they are already familiar with. Find a piece that they love, that they may not normally get a chance to see.
This was my vision.
Then COVID hit and that idea turned into an online gallery website, for now. The vision just altered a bit.
So please, cruise the website, take a look at the beautiful work, get INSPIRED and shop BEAUTY.
For now, stay safe. xo
Born in and raised in Vancouver, BC Canada, I moved to Chilliwack 4 years ago and love it out here. I find, though, that there is no Art for people to shop for except when there are markets. And markets are brief and not constant. Especially now.
A being a vendor at markets, I know there are many talented artists out here. I really wanted to create a space for artists to show and sell their work. A space to have workshops and build a community of like minded people.
I thought about it for a while and it just wasn’t leaving my head. During Christmas 2019, I would ask artists what they think and if it would be something they would be interested in. There was a resounding yes.
Now, I could not get it out of my head. I was in the process of looking for a space when the COVID hit.
That is when the online art gallery was created.
All the artists on board are extremely talented and the kindest, most accomodating, lovely people. I really feel this is a wonderful group of talented people.
