On March 11

A reception will be held March 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. to celebrate the opening. It will be a great opportunity to meet the artists in the show and view the art.

Several donated works of art are featured along with the members’ exhibit. Proceeds from each donated piece will help raise the $1,500 needed for the gallery’s high school bursary fund.

In addition to the sale of fundraiser pieces, half of all donations made to the gallery during the year go to the bursary fund. For a bursary application form and further information, go to the gallery website at www.pearlellisgallery.com. Bursary applications may also be picked up at the gallery.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of work by established and emerging local artists. Many of these artists belong not only to the Pearl Ellis Gallery but groups such as Brushworks, Monday Bunch and the Art Group of the Comox Valley.

One can count on being able to see a great selection of art in various styles and media. The Pearl Ellis Gallery is always a good place to visit and to shop for that unique new piece of art for one’s home, business or as a gift. The gallery also carries a good selection of art cards suitable for all occasions.

The gallery has been solely run and operated by volunteers who believe in the importance of a public art gallery in Comox that provides a venue for our vast pool of local artists. They gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Town of Comox, the CVRD (Areas A, B and C), Comox Valley Lions Club, the Pearl’s many members, donors and sponsoring businesses.

The wheelchair-accessible Pearl Ellis is at 1729 Comox Ave. in downtown Comox. Admission is free and more information and a virtual tour of the show can be obtained by visiting www.pearlellisgallery.com or phoning the gallery at 250-339-2822 during opening hours, which are Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m.

New members are always welcome and membership fees are only $20 a year. A large number of our members are not artists themselves but rather are enthusiastic supporters of art.
