Special show at the museum

Announcing a first for the Sooke Community Arts Council

The Sooke Community Arts Council is stretching its wings and reaching to the Sooke Region Museum gallery with a show of members’ work. The Spring Art Show and Sale will feature the works of local artists such as: painter Michel DeRochers, three-dimensional artist Anne Boquist, ceramic artist Glenys Marshall-Inman and painter Susanne Jensen.

“It’s the first annual and we hope it will be an every year event,” said show coordinator Maureen Savoy.

Savoy, who has had her work shown at the 2012 and 2010 Sooke Fine Arts Show will have her work in the show.

The participating artists will replace sold work to ensure a lively and varied show of art. New works may be introduced during the second month of the show.

Art lovers can expect to see a wide variety of media including photographs, paintings, jewelry, fibre and ceramic as well as glass. Many of the pieces in the show will be inpsired by the beauty that surrounds Sooke and area.

The Sooke Region Museum Gallery is located at 2072 Phillips Road.

Show hours: Saturday, April 6 to Saturday, May 25 from10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Mondays during the month of April and every day during the month of May.
