Calyx Distinctive Arts Show – Saturday Oct 20, 10:00am-4:00pm
Location: Crescent Heights Community Centre 1101 2St NW Calgary
Calyx is a reputable art show running its 36th semi-annual gallery style presentation featuring both emerging and well known artists in all forms of art. You will discover amazing original pieces in various mediums (no prints). Artists are present along with their artworks in painting, fibre, wood, sculpture, jewellery, printed silks, metals and more.
Come speak with the artist and learn about the process that goes into each piece of work. Not only is it inspiring to view the creativity, a piece may connect with you on many levels. You might need to take it home;)
The show runs both Sat & Sun Oct 20-21, although please note that there is a completely different set of artists present each day with a new show. I will only be at the Calyx Art show on Saturday.
Artists showing each day are listed under the event on their website below.
