Art on the Line

This popular annual event brings together the local arts community to celebrate the work of our students, faculty, alumni, as well as artists practicing in the community in the spirit of raising funds.

The evening is an entertaining art raffle with many more exciting prizes available to be won. over 100 works of art are collected from local artists, faculty, and students. One ticket admits two people to the event, and guarantees winning one work of art from the collection. Even the last ticket drawn has a choice from over 20 works, which creates an atmosphere of suspense and entertainment.

Funds raised from this event are distributed amongst the Visual Arts Course Union to financially aid with events such as the 4th year graduate exhibition, visiting artists, and art focused student trips. Each year, 10% of the proceeds go to a local charity.

“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
