If you are unsure of what to buy for your loved ones this holiday season, the Stinking Fish Fall Show is a good place to start your search.
Sixteen artists’ work will be featured at the event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 25 and 26 at the Metchosin Hall.
One of the local artists showing off her work at the event is Marlene Bowman, a clay artists from East Sooke who has been working with clay for more than 20 years.
Bowman has been engaged in art most of her life, but to the surprise of many, didn’t find her passion for clay art until her mid 40s. Now into her 80s, she continues to thrive in the art community and has no plans on stopping.
“What got me started was seeing a pot being thrown on a potters wheel for the first time, it brought tears to my eyes it was such a moving experience,” said Bowman. “I knew right then it was something I wanted to learn how to do, and decided very early on that I would keep on doing it until I was very old.”
This year’s show will include artwork of a variety of mediums, including ceramics, metal, paintings, photography, mosaics, mixed media, drawings, and stone carvings.
