Sooke Fine Arts Society puts on studio tour

Art lovers of all kinds are invited to take part in the upcoming Salt Spring National Prize event.

The Sooke Fine Art Society has organized another art-filled adventure to Salt Spring Island, Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Art lovers are invited to take in the inaugural Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) exhibition and studio tour of three Salt Spring Island artists whose work received accolades at the 2015 Sooke Fine Arts Show.

Attendees will be treated to a docent-led tour of the inaugural Salt Spring National Art Prize exhibition, a juried, national prize competition featuring works by 52 finalists from across the country (a number of whom also exhibited at this summer’s Sooke Fine Arts Show).

Following the gallery tour, attendees will enjoy lunch at Barb’s Bakery and Bistro before visiting the studios of artists Patrick McCallum, Melanie Williamson, and Nicola Wheston, a SSNAP finalist.

McCallum and Williamson both took home Awards of Excellence from this year’s Sooke Fine Arts Show, while Wheston’s large-scale oil painting “Moving with Black Truck” received the Jan Johnson Memorial Award for social commentary.

The tour is open to non-members as well.

Confirmation of attendance is required by Oct. 8 as space is limited.
