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 in British Columbia.

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.

If you an ARTIST, please email and we can send you more information on how to apply. If you have doubts, please go to the HOME page to read why you should apply.

For now, stay safe. xo

OWNER/MANAGER

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.
