Comox art gallery taking things outdoors for the summer

Artists at Pearl Ellis Gallery are invited to ‘paint on the patio’

In an effort to heighten the awareness of art, promote artists and art sales, as well as grow the member of the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox, the Board of Directors has invited members to “Paint on the Patio.”

Throughout the summer months, weather permitting, you can experience and chat with artists of different mediums as they work “plein air” (outside). Ask hard questions. You might even commission a piece!

Artists will be located in the patio area outside the front door of the Pearl Ellis Gallery and Comox Archives & Museum Society on random gallery open days (Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), June through September.

Members interested in participating should contact Carol Schinkel at peg.patio@gmail.com
