The cold and gloomy weather is tough to deal with these days, but don’t worry, because the Stinking Fish Studio Tour is back this weekend to get you in front of some cool pieces of art.

The annual art show takes place this Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 19 and 20) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the West-Month Montessori School at 4075 Metchosin Road.

Among local artists are Kate Woods and Angela Menzies, both of whom were featured in the Sooke News Mirror. Woods will present her stone sculptures at West-Mont, while Menzies will feature her latest paintings at her Brown Dog Studio in East Sooke.

Guest artists also include Marlene Bowman, ceramics, Bonnie Coulter, mixed media, Alice McLean, ceramics, raku, Wendy Mitchell, fine arts, Elaine Morton, watercolour, Bev Petow, metal sculpture, Morgan Saddington, jewelry, Ann Semple, ceramics, Rob Chabot, painting, Anne Krauss, jewelry, glass, Sarah Leckie, ceramics, Susan Romphf, fire arts, Jocelyn West, painting, photography, Lashen Orendoff, wood and metal, Jane Clifton, painting, photography, and Lorna Ball, mosaics.

Why the name Stinking Fish? In the 1840s when British explorer James Douglas asked the First Nations people of this region what they called the area now known as Metchosin, they answered S-met-sho-sun, which literally means “stinking fish.”
