Call for entries to Originals Only Art Show

Largest outdoor art show north of Victoria goes Aug. 8 and 9

The Originals Only Art Show and Sale is gearing up for another great show this summer.

Set aside Aug. 8 and 9 and plan on participating.

This is the largest outdoor art show north of Victoria. The show has had as many as 75 participants and is a terrific venue for artists to show and sell their work. Originals Only is unusual in that it is completely organized by the participating artists with the entry fees going to promoting and putting on the show.

Also, the main principle of the show is that all the work shown are original paintings and sculpture, produced using traditional methods of creating the artwork. The event is held annually at Marina Park in Comox.

If you are interested in taking part in organizing the show call Christy Mitchell for date and times of our monthly meetings: 250-703-2244. To learn more and to download an application go to
