Hey! So Glad You're Here.

We are a group of students with various creative backgrounds at Capilano's Arts and Entertainment Management program. Understanding artists' needs and combining them with venue visions have always been a passion for us. We love the artistic environment, and we also like to provide a down-to-earth sense enabling visitors to enjoy and understand the artist's expressions. We are passionate about curating unique exhibitions and gifting the feelings that only art can provide to our audience. We try to build an environment for artists to express their talents and visions through art. 

Being a diverse group from different places and with different professional backgrounds worldwide has given us the tools and knowledge to become a creative and open mind team. We care for emerging artists in Vancouver and want to provide them with exposure by displaying their art. Therefore, our call for submissions is always open to all artists, professional or emerging. 

 

The Bubble of Art is created by Saghi, Madeline, Koustuv, Sichelle, and Virginia. Although we have different characters with different backgrounds, we have a united passion for curation and art.
