Happy Holidays from all of us at Opus!


Whether you could use some assistance selecting that special gift for all the creative individuals on your list, or want to make a difference to the creatives in your community, the staff at Opus are your Holiday resource.


Celebrated photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson said, “It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera... they are made with the eye, heart and head”. So it is with all art, and with the business of providing art supplies and services.

We at Opus work each day to offer a myriad of resources for your eyes, heart and head. Beyond the art materials and tools we make available, I believe that it is the care and knowledge our wonderful staff provide that makes the biggest difference in why you continue to shop at Opus. It is our sincere pleasure to be here to help you realize your creative vision throughout the year.

As we move towards Opus’ 42nd year as part of BC’s visual arts community, I would like to extend my gratitude to all of you who have helped us build this business by being loyal customers and friends. On behalf of all of us at Opus Art Supplies, I wish you a joyous holiday season and a very creative new year.

David van Berckel
Owner & President, Opus Art Supplies


Opus Donations Drive 2015

Giving back to the arts community is important to all of us at Opus. Now in its 16th year, the Opus Donations Drive raises much needed funds for local organizations, matching your cash donations with Opus gift cards of equal value, to assist each group’s programs.

See which charity your store is supporting this holiday season by visiting opusartsupplies.com/donationsdrive. Let’s continue to share our gift with the community!
