The ArtBreakers Market is hosted and organized by the ArtBreakers Illustration Society – a non-profit group founded by four artist friends: Laura Bifano, Graeme McCormack, Tim Mack, and Tessa Riecken. ArtBreakers was created to provide illustrators and designers with an event and community that is their own. The ArtBreakers Market aims to showcase some of the best image-makers in Vancouver city and invites the public to meet some of the industry pros who don’t always go to the cons.
This event is free to the public.
Friday the 13th is back this Fall! This time with even more gore and talent. Artists Mitchell Villa and Christian Whiticar bring the terror back to life with new large scale paintings. For Part II, Alysha Farling joins the crew with sculptural extremities and creepy characters. Catch all the bloodshed next month on Friday the 13th at The Ellis Building.
The Disposable Camera Project is back! We gave disposable cameras to some of our favourite artists in the city, and we’ll be sharing the best photos at the Remington Gallery & Studio on September 22.

Join us for cheap beer, sweet tunes provided by No Fun Radio, and the gorgeous work of nine local artists and photographers. Prints will be for sale, with all profits going directly to the artists, and admission to the show is free.
Co-curated by Megan Jenkins and Helen Wong.

Technical Problem is an exhibition of mixed media drawings by Vancouver-based, Iranian-born artist Aileen Bahmanipour that explores cyclical political power and cultural identity.
Bahmanipour’s work draws from Iran’s mythic history such as the story of King Zahak contained in the national epic poem Shahnameh written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE. Zahak was cursed by the kiss of the devil with two snakes that grew out of his shoulders. According to the legend, he began beheading the youth of Iran to feed their brains to his snakes. Fearful of being bitten by the snakes, Zahak sacrificed the future intellectual life of an entire nation.
Gam Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of drawings and paintings by Vancouver artist Sandeep Johal. Rest in Power will open on the second evening of Swarm, a two-night event organized by participating artist-run-centres in Vancouver to launch their programming season.
This exhibition features new works from Johal's recent project Rest in Power, a body of work dedicated to twelve women from various cultural backgrounds whose murders have impacted her deeply. Johal stresses the distinction between identifying the women’s passings as murders and not only death, to emphasize the inherent daily threat of violence faced by women across the world. The women featured in Rest in Power suffered domestic abuse, honour killing, and femicide. The title serves to restore their power in the afterlife, and in turn resurrect their memories in peace.
Gam Gallery is also pleased to present a selection of new works by mixed media Vancouver artist Vanessa Lam in our ongoing Studio Series. Lam’s works investigate the dynamics of form, space and the unconscious through collage and mixed media painting. She refers to Abstract Expressionism in her work through gesture and automatic painting.
Clever and inspiring words to make you feel comfortable yet excited about a comedy show featuring people who will, based on all available evidence, be hilarious and thought-provoking because they are sensitive and smart and most of all VERY FUNNY.
