For 42 years, Emily Carr University of Art + Design has hosted the highly anticipated, Student Art Sale, featuring our up-and-coming artists and designers and providing them with the platform to sell a wide selection of original paintings, photographs, prints, ceramics, sculpture, wearable works, housewares, greeting cards and more. This event has stood the test of time and become a must-see for Vancouverites and holiday shoppers alike. We are incredibly grateful for the support of our sponsors whose generous contributions aid us in keeping the tradition of the Student Art Sale alive. This year we would like to extend a very special thank you to the Sale’s Gold Sponsor, Opus Art Supplies, for their ongoing support. We spoke with Opus’s Marketing Manager, Crissy Arseneau, about the importance of buying local and supporting the arts, see what she has to say below!
