Celebrating 20 Years!

Yukon Artist’s at Work, YA@W, gallery, Whitehorse, Yukon, 4129 4th Avenue, Whitehorse, YT, Y1A 1H7

Yukon Artists At Work (YAAW) celebrates our 20th anniversary next year. We have a number of special events planned, including an exhibit at the Yukon Arts Centre in the spring. For this show, we would like to feature artwork purchased by visitors to the gallery over the last 20 years. 

We are so grateful to collectors who have supported us since 2003. We would not have survived without you. We are now asking for an additional act of generosity…for you to loan one or more of the pieces you purchased at our gallery for use in the exhibition. Because we don’t have the means to cover shipping costs, we are limiting this to collectors in the Whitehorse area. 

We are hoping to include one small work (no larger than 12” x 12” x 12”) from every artist who is or has been a member of Yukon Artists At Work. In addition, we will feature twelve larger works that span our 20-year history. 

If you are an artist who was once a member of YAAW, please contact us at yaaw20th@gmail.com to confirm your contact information. Please also reach out to your Whitehorse collectors and invite them to send us images of the work they have in their collections that they might be interested in loaning for our exhibition.

If you are a collector who has purchased work from YAAW over the years, please send us images of pieces in your collection that you would be willing to loan to us for the art show. The email address is yaaw20th@gmail.com

To the best of your ability, please tell us the following for each piece:
Year made
Year purchased from YAAW

There is a special collectors’ event to which everyone who sends images will be invited, whether or not your works are selected for the exhibition. Send us an email and we will provide the details.

Thank you so much!
