The Mountain View Arts Society is pleased to host the 8th Annual Art Show & Sale at the Didsbury Art, Travel & Trade Expo in Didsbury. Hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, this is the largest trade show between Airdrie and Red Deer in Central Alberta.

ARTISTS' WINDOW
We offer a comfortable space for an "Artist's Window". This popular area sheds light on the artistic process, how artists make art. Each artist has an opportunity to schedule a time when the public can watch them practice their craft, opening a window into the lives of artists as they go about their work.

Artists who participated in 2018 included Donna Brink, Michelle Houston, Christina Ekman, Bill Anthony, Chris Carlson, Delree Dumont, Gayle Kohut, Robin Rohl, Ashley Leggette, and Melany Sealy.

We will be sending out our Call to Artists for the 2019 Show before the end of the year. Please check back.
