10 Under 100 opens at Studio B

Exhibit opens on Friday, Dec. 4 with a reception from 7 to 11 p.m.

Studio B Gallery in Cumberland presents the third annual holiday exhibit 10 Under 100 Show of works under or around $100 each.

The highly popular exhibit opens on Friday, Dec. 4 with a reception from 7 to 11 p.m.

It is the season of giving, and Studio B Gallery is once again offering its famous holiday show with the goal of promoting local art as a thoughtful, and affordable, holiday present. The exhibit promises to impress, dazzle and even puzzle the audience. There will be some familiar names, such as Cathy Stoyko, Gillian Brooks and Destanne Lundquist, but this year, Studio B Gallery hopes to surprise the art crowd with a few new names and well as local artists that have not yet been exhibited in the Comox Valley.

Sonia Stastny, the show’s curator, resides in Cumberland but remains in touch with Vancouver’s art scene, her previous place of residence.

“I like to seek out art that inspires and challenges me,” said Stastny. “There is so much talent in the Vancouver area; I like to share it with our audience in the Comox Valley.  I believe it is important to have a constant flow of inspiration and novelty in our art community.”

The 10 Under 100 Show will be open for preview to public on Saturday, Nov. 28, the day of the Cumberland WinterFaire in which SSAG will participate, and will continue through January 2016.

Sew Sisters Artist Guild is also participating in the CVAG’s Christmas Fair with collage art cards that are sold to raise funds for local non-profit organization, Sew Sisters Artist Guild Society, under which Studio B operates.

Studio B Gallery is located at 2704 Dunsmuir Avenue in Cumberland.
