ARTiFACTS exhibits Sooke Region artists

Art show runs from April 27 to May 28 at Sooke Region Museum

Work by 10 Sooke Region artists highlight the third annual ARTiFACTS Art Show.

ARTiFACTS runs from April 27 to May 28 at Sooke Region Museum.

All types of art, carving, fibre, clay, pottery and photography is exhibited.

What makes ARTiFACTS different from other art shows, says organizer Linda Gordon, is that all artists are local and the work must reflect elements of the area or inspired by the Sooke Region.

Each piece exhibited will have a bio of the artist, how the work relates to the Sooke area and how it was created.

Among the artists this year are Shannon John Valentine, who suffers from Parkinsonism, who gets remarkable photographic shots using a tripod for stabilization and a unique perspective, and fabric artist Lynda Slater has extensive knowledge of dyes and silks. Her creations utilize natural dyes and are inspired by the colors of the forest and moss as well as the beach and the ocean.

An artist meet and greet is set for April 29. Art demonstrations will also be held throughout the month.

All artwork is for sale.

ARTiFACTS is a project of the Sooke Community Arts Council.
