10 under 100 holiday art exhibit opens Dec. 2 at Studio B in Cumberland

The fourth annual 10 under 100 holiday art exhibit opens Friday, Dec. 2 at Studio B (2704 Dunsmuir Ave.) in Cumberland.

There will be an opening reception Friday evening, from 7-11 p.m. The show will continue into the new year.

Studio B resident curator Sonia Stastny says the audience is sure to find something that pleases the eye and appeals to the variety of artistic tastes. The show will showcase works by artists new to Studio B as well as popular artists from the guild’s roster. All the artworks will be under or around the $100 mark and thus perfect for the holiday gift-giving crowd.

“I am amazed at how much the art scene is growing in the Valley and I enjoy connecting the dots between different communities, age groups and organizations, whether it be Cumberland, Courtenay or Denman Island; kids workshops at the Cumberland Community School Society or advanced collaborative art projects at the Comox Valley Art Gallery,” said Stastny.

In recent exhibits at Studio B Gallery, Stastny has unveiled some hidden artistic talent from the Comox Valley, often stay-at-home moms following their creative passion in the rare moments of spare time.
