The Spring 2023 issue marks the beginning of our 16th year in production. The Island Arts Magazine is an interactive digital publication covering Vancouver Island and All Canadian art. Our focus is on artistic events, art exhibitions, workshops, editorial content on everything ART.

For the first several years of publishing Island Arts Magazine we concentrated on Vancouver Island Artists only. Over the years we were able to expand our reach to the mainland and later all of BC. Now that we are a digital magazine we are proud to represent art and artists from across Canada - Coast to Coast.

Spring 2023 marks our 63rd issue. Read our current issue.
