The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC Okanagan, in association with the Visual Arts Course Union, presents its 17th annual Art on the Line fundraiser and gala on Saturday February 9th, 2019. This popular event brings together the local arts community to celebrate the work of students, faculty, alumni, and artists practicing in the community.

Proceeds from the event support visual arts student exhibitions like the 4th year show, their visiting artist program, opportunities for travel grants and exhibitions, as well as a local charity.

The evening is an entertaining art gala, where approximately 100 works of art are collected from local artists, faculty and students, which are then raffled off to guests who have purchased tickets to the event. This year’s gala is co-hosted by creative writing professor Michael V. Smith along with BFA student and performer Peter Navratil.

“I love Art on the Line. There is so much talent in the valley, and so many great students studying fine art at UBC Okanagan. Art on the Line is the best place to see work by all of our local artists. It’s a fun night to support students. And you walk away with a great piece of work for your walls.” – Michael V. Smith
