Annual Square Foot Show opens Friday at Art Alchemy

Original 12x12 art for $200

Five years ago, the first Square Foot Show opened to an expectant crowd at the Purple Onion Cafe in Comox.

Since then it has expanded to the enthusiastically received glittery events at the Art Alchemy Studios. This much-awaited fifth edition of the celebration is the most ambitious Art Alchemy production to date.

More than 80 talented and diverse artists have been invited to submit works, and all work is juried for acceptance to the show.

What sets a square foot show apart from other shows is that each piece of high quality, original art is the same size, 12” x 12”, and the same price, $200.

All other studio work is put away, and the entire studio space is transformed into an intoxicating patchwork of one-of-a-kind paintings. Wine, cheese, and other refreshments and nibblies will be served along with the art.

The fifth annual Square Foot Show opens on Friday, Nov. 27, with a glitzy grand opening bash from 6-9 p.m.

It runs through the weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28 and Sunday, Nov. 29.

Many of the contributing artists will be in attendance throughout the show, along with the members of the Art Alchemy collective. Art Alchemy is located at 362c, 10th St. in Courtenay.

This is a great opportunity to choose the perfect gift for that special person on your Christmas list, or add to your own collection.

At $200, these square foot beauties are a great price. Arrive early to choose your favourites — the paintings will be flying off the walls.
