We're grateful to our sponsors, partners and especially to the public who visited us over the weekend to experience the legendary Student Art Sale.

Record crowds attended our legendary event, which is a favourite among Vancouverites for many years - 42 to be exact.The Concourse Gallery was filled with hundreds of our students' best works across various mediums including ceramics, painting, sculpture, photography, illustration and print media. The event centres on student entrepreneurship by providing up-and-coming artists and designers with a public platform to showcase and promote their respective practices, while connecting personally with buyers and benefactors help to launch their creative careers.

Donors and University supporters with an Inner Circle Membership enjoyed a Sneak Peek Party before the doors opened for the weekend crowds.
