"Mushrooms, with their diverse shapes, vibrant colors, and enigmatic lifecycle, have captured the creative imagination of humanity for centuries.

Today, they continue to be a source of inspiration in contemporary art and culture, featured in various mediums from visual arts and fashion to film, music, and literature. Their complex biology, ecological significance, and symbolic resonance make them a fascinating subject for cultural exploration."


Nick @ Incredible Mushrooms

Welcome to the 2nd annual
Mush Love
Art Exhibition & Market Event

What can we say, we’re passionate about mushrooms and we think there may just be a few people out there who share our affection for fungi, the arts and conscious community events.

We are ecstatic to be back for our second annual event focused on bringing together the community in celebration of the fabulous world of fungi and the magic of mushroom culture. Mush Love is a dynamic and unique platform that combines an inclusive, group art exhibition with a mini-mushroom-inspired market by local creators, growers and educators.

We think this is the perfect incubator to activate the Calgary arts community and bring awareness and appreciation to the rising tide of mushroom culture, cultivation and curiosity.

We are proud to be using Inglewood’s premier artist destination, The Nvrlnd Boutique. The space itself boasts a sleek, modern 1200 sq. ft. footprint. The gorgeous custom ceiling treatment is not only aesthetically breathtaking, but it also performs the essential duty of changing the interior acoustics. We feel blessed to have access to an art space like this in our great city.
