About New West Artists

NWA:  inspire • encourage • celebrate •  connect • educate • promote

Are you a Visual Artist
wishing to connect with other artists?

New West Artists is an inclusive, non-profit society in the Lower Mainland that endeavours to inspire, encourage, and celebrate visual artists through connection, education, and promotion.

The purposes of the Society are:

      1. anticipate, create and extend opportunities to promote visual art and artist members;
      2. to encourage members to develop their artwork and business professionally;
      3. to increase awareness and appreciation of visual art by connecting visual artists with the community;
      4. act as a resource for the artist community.

New West Artists welcomes visual artists of all levels, from hobby artists to full-time professional veterans, from anywhere.

We operate our own art gallery at 712C Twelfth Street in New Westminster, where we welcome new exhibitors.  We also present small concerts featuring local musicians.  Space is also available for rental for members and community workshops and meetings.

Regular opening hours: Thursdays to Sundays noon to 6 pm.

If you are interested in exhibiting for a quarterly three-month contract, (January/February/March or April/May/June or July/August/September or October/November/December), or on a monthly basis, please contact [email protected] +SUBJECT: G12 GALLERY EXHIBITION 2019/Artist Name.
