Snoop Dogg Vancouver Art Show
The Fall Gallery, 644 Seymour St.
The Fall art gallery invites everyone to “drop it like it’s art” in an unusually-themed art show. The exhibition is organized by a collective who made their name with other exhibits featuring celebrities as art objects, including Bill You Murray Me? last February, and Steven Seagallery, which included pieces from a Burning Man art show. The show will feature artists of all levels expressing their love for D-O-double-G through various media.
Looking for something more sophisticated than a six-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon to celebrate the upcoming weekend? The Hopscotch Festival’s sixteenth edition brings the best of whiskey, scotch and craft beer to Metro Vancouver. Upgrading to a bigger venue, the festival will feature over 250 products available for tasting. Aside from being a great excuse to enjoy delicious beverages, Hopscotch offers master classes on topics like the history of Jack Daniel’s and lessons on European craft beer brewing techniques.
Eastside Culture Crawl
The culture crawl invites the public to visit East Vancouver artists’ work in their natural habitat. Over 400 local artists with studios located in the area from Main Street to Victoria Drive participate in the free event this year, which is a hundred times more than the first Eastside open-studio fundraiser in 1994. The event involves artists of all levels of expertise and all types of craft, from glassblowing to writing. Whether it’s to find a new painting for that empty spot on your wall, or to share experiences with fellow artists, the Crawl gives Vancouverites plenty of chances to get properly cultured.[hr]
