ARTIFACTS winds up

Art show at the museum wraps up

ARTIFACTS exhibit at Sooke Region Museum was a success

The ARTiFACTS exhibit and sale at the Sooke Region Museum saw the last day on May 30.  Fifteen local Sooke artists took part in the event, with 10 works being sold, as well as numerous scarves by two participating fiber artists. An acrylic painting by emerging artist Deb Koff sold just five minutes before closing.
