Calyx 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:

  • Art-buyers can meet the artists

  • Art-buyers feel good about buying from artists directly, knowing that the artist retains a greater percentage of the purchase price of the artwork

  • Minimal overhead enables the artists to keep costs low and therefore prices of artwork affordable

  • Artists gain direct feedback about their artwork from the art buying public

  • Artists have the opportunity to educate the public about their artwork, discussing their sources of inspiration, and their methods and techniques

  • Artists 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!
