The Cheaper Show NO.8

The Cheaper Show returns once again. I hope you can make it to this great event!

On June 21st, 2008, the eighth installment of The Cheaper Show series will take place in the Gastown district of Vancouver, BC.

The concept of The Cheaper Show is very simple: 150 multi-disciplined international artists presenting 300 pieces of art, each priced at $200 for one night only. Far from being an 'art sale,' each exhibiting artist consciously makes a sacrifice by selling their work for less than its potential value. This creates united support for the event, the arts community, and an opportunity for this show to take place in an environment that is accessible to everyone. In turn, many walk away with sales, exposure, commissions and gallery representation, as well as having an opportunity to connect with peers on an even playing field.

Visitors are drawn to the show, discovering a rare display of exceptionally diverse talent where someone from almost any financial background may own a piece of art. These people include the curious, the first time buyer, and the well-seasoned collector.

The Cheaper Show is a salon style exhibition that focuses on quality and diversity rather than category. Works of art, regardless of medium, are displayed so as to activate one another; oil paintings and illustrations hang next to contemporary photographs with content that ranges from the urban to the academic.
