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 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 28. 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 to be held 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.

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