Many events at Sooke Fine Arts Show

Popular Island show runs to August 1

There are still a number of events taking place at the SFA show. On Wednesday, July 27 a special night is being held for teens ages 13 to 18. From 6 to 8 p.m. they will have an opportunity to meet and enjoy performances by local youth and musicians.

One Thursday, July 28 and Friday, July 29 seniors can enjoy fine art and fine tea from 2 to 4 p.m. each day. Doug Farr will entertain on piano on Thursday and Louise Rose and the Victoria Good News Choir perform on Friday afternoon.

From 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 28 the Rhythm Miners will entertain while art and food lovers get a Taste of Sooke. Tasty appetizers made by local chefs and a glass of wine will entice patrons to wander through the aisles enjoying the art and perhaps purchasing art from the show or in the gift shop.

On Saturday, July 30, a gala (by invitation only) evening is planned to celebrate the show’s 25 successful years. Those who have contributed to the success of the show will be recognized and the evening ends with live music and dancing.

There are artist demonstrations, an Edward Milne Community School youth art display and entertainers throughout the show.

“People are enjoying the music as well,” said Sally Manning, show coordinator for 2011.

The Sooke Fine Arts Show runs to August 1 at 2168 Phillips Road.For more information go to: www.sooke finearts.com
