Distinctive Arts, founded in 2001
by professional artists, host art exhibitions and sales
twice annually in Calgary, Alberta. The name 'Calyx' (ka'-liks) means 'the outer protective covering of a flower' and symbolizes an organization that protects and nurtures budding artists, supporting them to bloom to their full potential.
The Calyx directors, and up
to thirty-five guest artists each day, display and sell high quality
art from a diverse spectrum of disciplines.
Calyx organizers believe that artists are the most
qualified people to exhibit and sell artwork as they have an intimate
understanding of artists, their media, and their specific artwork. Calyx exhibition and sale events offer
numerous advantages for both the art-buying public and the artist:
can meet the artists
feel good about buying from artists directly, knowing that the
artist retains a greater percentage of the purchase price of the
overhead enables the artists to keep costs low and therefore prices
of artwork affordable
gain direct feedback about their artwork from the art buying public
have the opportunity to educate the public about their artwork, discussing their sources of inspiration, and their methods and techniques
support each other, working together toward a common goal
Calyx has secured a great exhibition space in a central and convenient
location with lots of free parking. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American
Express, Debit cards and cash. Please join us for our next event!
