At Art Central, studios, galleries, boutiques and eateries converge under one roof to form a hub of visual art and culture. Consisting of more than 50 shops and spaces, this downtown venue serves double duty as a vibrant artistic gathering place and a one-of-a-kind shopping destination.
Visitors to Art Central will find gorgeous original art, fashion and jewellery, as well as handcrafted stationery, fabulous books, fresh flowers and much more. The venue also boasts two eateries, where patrons can sit back, enjoy a delicious meal and soak in the creative atmosphere.
On the first Thursday of every month, Art Central showcases new arrivals and exhibitions with live music and delicious eats from 5 to 9 p.m. Many of the studios and galleries also host their own workshops, art classes and other special events throughout the year.
Art Central is located in the heart of Calgary’s Cultural District.
