A Weekend of Discovering Art across Canada

April 25 – 28, 2024
Various locations across Canada

The Art Dealers Association of Canada (ADAC) is pleased to announce its inaugural year of the Canadian Art Hop.

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 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 favorite Art Zones and discover new ones as they visit provinces.

As the month progresses programming will be announced for participating spaces.
