This year, the Brushworks painting group, formally established in 2001, will showcase its works in a wonderful new location.

A bright and airy space right on Comox Avenue is the new home of the Pearl Ellis Gallery and the Comox Archives and Museum.

Twenty-eight local artists who paint together every week form Brushworks. This talented group creates delightful works in oils, acrylics, watercolours and some mixed media. With such a variety of media and styles, there is sure to be art on display to appeal to a range of tastes.

The Brushworks Art Show and Sale runs from Nov. 8 to 27. One of the member artists will be in attendance on each afternoon that the gallery is open.

Plan a Saturday outing and meet the exhibiting artists at the opening reception Nov. 12 from 1 to 4 p.m. At the reception, any new or existing member of the Pearl Ellis Gallery will receive a 10-per-cent discount on artwork purchased.

Mark Nov. 20 at 1 p.m.  on your calendar because Ruth Dickson, a Brushworks member, will do a reading and signing of her recently published book Among the Blue Mountains at the gallery.

This is the sequel to Pebbles In The Stream, completing the tales Dickson tells of her “logging life” with her family. This is her fourth published book.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery and Comox Archives and Museum is located at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery is closed Mondays.
