You are invited to the North Shore Art Crawl

Hello,

I'm AJ Brown and Im participating in the North Shore Art Crawl. http://nsartcrawl.ca/participant_profiles/aj_brown

The North Shore Art Crawl is a free community arts festival that celebrates local artists. Our mission is to bring about approachable and accessible art venues that encourage the community to connect with, and celebrate the creativity of, our North Shore artists. Our goal is to engage, inspire, and transform the North Shore through inclusive alliances amongst artists and the community.This is self guided tour for the public of artists' studios.

The Crawl started as a grass roots movement by two North Shore artists, but after three years of organizing and running the event it became too time consuming for a small team of volunteers to handle, so the North Vancouver Community Arts Council offered to takeover the event.

The philosophy behind the Crawl is that we really want to be inclusive of all art forms without any artificial boundaries between art and crafts. In the last years we welcomed registrations from textile artists, jewelers, potters, designers, sculptors, comic book artists and many others.

I participated in the Crawl since 2012. When you visit my home studio you will see a variety of artwork Ive produced since 1999 using acrylics, charcoal, pencil, mixed media, watercolour, ink and knitting.

You may view my work on March 7 and 8, from 10 am 6 pm, at:

300-380 Klahanie Court
West Vancouver
My place marker on the Crawl map is number 18.
