Final art show of the year at Pearl Ellis Gallery doubles as a fundraiser

“The Biggest Little Art Show in the Valley” opens Dec. 2




The Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox presents “The Biggest Little Art Show in the Valley.”

The show offers an art extravaganza of over 100 smaller  pieces of original art priced at $175 or less. This Christmas fundraiser event begins Dec. 2 and runs until Dec. 20.

The opening of the show will be celebrated with a Meet and Greet the artists on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 1– 4 p.m.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of work by local artists. This is an all media event so there will be everything from paintings in watercolour, acrylic, oil, plus photography and carvings.

The proceeds from the fundraiser will go to support the gallery high school bursary program and operational costs. 2015 Pearl Ellis memberships are available. One of the many benefits of a $20 membership is 10 per cent off art purchase during our opening celebrations and the day you take out your membership.
