Invitation To Canada’s First Culture Days Reception

By  Liza J. Lee – You’re invited to Canada’s first Culture Days reception, which includes Raw Canvas on September 25 from 6 pm at Raw Canvas, 1046 Hamilton Street Vancouver, BC.

The Craftivism (Downsized) Art Show starts with a reception and painting workshop at Raw Canvas in Yaletown (1046 Hamilton Street, Vancouver) 6 pm to 8 pm on Saturday, September 25 during Culture Days across Canada. FREE COVER

Overtime Building Maintenance is proud to sponsor The Craftivism (Downsized) Art Show with over 60 8” x 8” paintings this fall. Many of the art pieces utilize…  found materials and recycling due to the theme of sustainable community centered around ideas of subversive structures and networks, which engage various social issues about communities-of-care and intimacy versus immediate publicity: including anti-consumerism, slow time, geo-social networking, environmentalism and sustainability.

The name of The Craftivism (Downsized) Art Show also illustrates that art funding has been severely downsized in BC. A “normal-sized” canvas could fetch $1200, but the canvas size is reduced to a tiny 8” x 8” and discounted by 92% to reflect how much the art funding has been cut in BC. Therefore, each 8” x 8” art piece is $110.40 with no HST as it is included in the price.

If you are at all interested in attending, please RSVP Tang at and we’ll email you more details of these shows and put you on the guest list. You’ll have a chance to win the grand prize of one month of green cleaning (value up to $5000) if you are selected as the winner. Also as our special guest, you’re also entitled to one FREE gift certificate of your choice from Nexus Hair Design at Metrotown or from Bob of Garlick Marketing.

Hope to see you there!
