Vancouver Arts & Crafts Association ticket 1901

The Art Union was an idea from England, where a lottery was held to draw for prizes consisting of artworks in the exhibition or exhibitions where the artwork was on display. Sometimes large and expensive artworks were available as prizes. This ticket is also interesting because the Association has added "of B.C." to their name, an indication of early plans for a Provincial artist's association.
