The Canadian Art Hop is a weekend devoted to the discovery, celebration, and love of Canadian art and art galleries. From coast to coast, the Canadian Art Hop will spotlight the diverse and dynamic tapestry of arts throughout the nation. With over 60 ADAC member commercial galleries, as well as artist-run centers and public institutions participating, attendees can expect to discover a variety of mediums, artists, and exhibitions shown. The participating spaces will be highlighted as Art Zones of creativity, fostering dialogue and engagement within their communities during the weekend via social media, and maps. Maps will stay active throughout the year so that visitors can revisit their favourite Art Zones and discover new ones as they visit provinces.

Whether you’re a seasoned art lover or a newcomer to the world of visual culture, the Canadian Art Hop welcomes one and all across the country to join on this journey of exploration and discovery of our Canadian art galleries and spaces. As the month progresses programming will be announced for participating spaces.
