Pacific Arts Market

Welcome To Vancouver's Best Art Destination

Pacific Arts Market (PAM) is extremely excited to announce a major expansion to our business. We hope you will join us on Friday, October 01, 2021, for our big Grand Opening.

Huge news! We have taken over the entire building at 1448 & 1450 W Broadway in the heart of South Granville. This doubles our art space with the opening of "The Gallery" and "The Studios" (Downstairs - 2339 sq. ft.). Upstairs, you will continue to find "The Market", 2,419 sq. ft. of locally handmade art and craft treasures, which opened on December 1st, 2018.

"We want to support the wonderful artists in our community and make them feel like they are part of the fabric of Vancouver", says Owner Crystal Cornthwaite. "We have created a very supportive atmosphere that is relaxed and inclusive, making it possible for artists to create, sell and interact with other art lovers."

"The Gallery" includes a modern storefront pop-up gallery space for individuals or groups to exhibit their art in our 290Sq. Ft. space, rotating every 4 weeks. It also includes a fabulous shared gallery space for artists to rent affordable smaller spaces for displaying and selling their work, with a minimum of 20 unique art spaces.

“The Studios” - features 7 working studios, occasionally open to the general public to meet and experience artists in their creative environment.

"We wanted to provide an affordable solution for the art community in Vancouver where studio space is increasingly hard to find", says Crystal.

At “The Market” located upstairs, you will experience a huge variety of local artists exhibiting paintings, jewelry, pottery, photography, leather goods, woodwork and other crafts. Shoppers can expect to find unique and individual items that have been carefully made and displayed by the artists themselves.

At Pacific Arts Market we do not take commission*, the artists retain 100% of their sales. Purchasing from PAM supports the local economy by directly benefiting local artists and makers - making it the ideal shopping destination for everyone in our community, and tourists alike.

Check our events section for our monthly free-entry social gatherings, complete with live music, free snacks, artist meet-and-greets and a cash bar; our events have a great atmosphere and it's an ideal way to connect with the local art scene. We also host regular workshops and other art happenings. Be sure to check ahead if you are planning to visit the city, or looking for something different, interesting and exciting to do!
