Reading the latest issue of IAM (AI generated)

The Spring 2024 issue marks the beginning of our 17th year in production. The Island Arts Magazine is an interactive digital publication covering Vancouver Island and All Canadian art. We focus on artistic events, exhibitions, workshops, and editorial content on everything ART.

For the first several years of publishing Island Arts Magazine, we only concentrated on Vancouver Island Artists. Over the years, we expanded our reach to the mainland and BC. Now that we are a digital magazine, we proudly represent art and artists across Canada, from coast to coast.

Spring 2024 marks our 68th issue.
