Artist's Calendar

Island Arts Artist Calendar 2014

The Annual Island Arts Magazine Artist's Calendar comes out in the fall. This full colour high-gloss calendar is a great marketing tool.

The calendar is a 12 month high-gloss full-colour, 8 1/2" x 11" calendar (opens to 11x17) highlighting artists of the West Coast. Each month depicts the work of a different artist along with a short biography.

Thanks for the lovely Island Arts calendar. What a great way to celebrate a year!
—Nana, Nanoose Bay, BC.

The artists pick their months on a first come, first serve basis. Calendars are distributed by the various artists.

Demand for a space was high last year, so book your month for next year NOW.
