The grand opening of this year’s All Islands Art Show will be on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 7 pm, at the Visitor Centre in Queen Charlotte. This art show is sponsored by the Queen Charlotte Island Arts Council. Entry forms are quickly coming in via email ( and to Box 921. You may also download an entry form at, which will also have details about the upcoming workshop.
This show is promising to be eclectic and exciting! There will be many new artists that have never shown their work publicly before, and this is what every art show craves – new people and their creations. Some of the mediums include glass, oil and watercolour, wood, clay, textiles and mixed media.
Artists need to get their entry forms in by Feb. 1. The drop off times for art pieces are Feb. 8 (11-7), Feb. 10 (6-8 pm), and Feb. 11 (11-5) at the Visitor Centre. Artists take note: Get your art pieces in on time, as our show is too intricate and large for stragglers! No late entries will be accepted for this show.
Nora Blanck, who has taught at UBC, Hollyhock and Emily Carr, will be the adjudicator of the show. She will also be presenting the workshop “The Creative Process of Colour” (with mixed medium and a small installation) on Sunday, Feb. 19, location and cost TBA. As well, she will be presenting a talk one evening about her own work.
This is your chance to dress up in your finest duds to see and to be seen! There will be refreshments, music and plenty of ambience in attendance. The show is up for a month. Come and see what your neighbours and friends are creating. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
