South Osborne Arts Group

That blue sky!

It can only mean one thing: the South Osborne spring art crawl is just around the corner.

We are changing things up a bit this time around, with the crawl taking place one day only, Saturday May 4th from 10am to 5pm. You'll have time to see a lot of art and artists, and maybe have lunch or dinner (or both!) in one of the many great restaurants in the neighbourhood.

What's an art crawl, you ask? Well, in this case, we are a number of artists who all live close together who are opening up their homes and studio spaces for the public to come have a look around. Curious what your neighbour is up to? Come have a look. Always wanted to have a look at art but didn't know where to start? The art crawl is definitely a place to start. Interested in buying something local? We can set you up with something that fits that description. You can walk from house to house to see how and where the artist creates their work. Gather some friends and make a day of it, and maybe discover your new favourite artist.

More information will be available shortly, but in the meantime have a look at the brochure from last May. There will be some new people on the tour this year, and as always, some virtually guaranteed, beautiful sunny weather.

Saturday, May 4th, 10am to 5pm.

The best art crawl in the city.

See the map below for locations. The brochure from the May 2018 tour follows, and you can look at that for more info about some of the artists. Please note that not all artists from May 2018 are participating. Only those listed with the map immediately below (including two new artists!) are taking part this year.

Plan for an afternoon in the South Osborne neighbourhood. There are many great restaurants in this neighbourhood, so after a day of walking, or maybe to power up before hand, or maybe even a stopover in between studios, there are a great many excellent options. Recently tried the new pizzeria called Vera Pizzeria. Very nice pizza, but don't just take my word for it, if it's down here, it must be good. As well, we have a brand new Hermanos on the corner of Beresford and Osborne. And, after a few years of Café D'Amour, those folks have gone on to other things, but that has been replaced by Park Line Coffee. BMC Market serves up some of the best authentic tacos in the city, and Chaeban has some of the most interesting ice cream in the city.
