Whether you’re a treasure hunter, bargain browser, antiques collector or vintage enthusiast, the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Lost Treasures second-hand art sale has booty, bounty and bargains!
From July 14 to 28, the gallery brings you an opportunity like no other to find the art, décor, gifts and treasures you’ve been searching for — at ridiculously affordable, bargain prices! Proceeds of this fundraiser support more programs and exhibitions that benefit the children, youth and adults of our Comox Valley community.
Donations have been arriving at the gallery since mid-June; CVAG has collected paintings, pottery, glasswork, woodwork, metalwork and tons of other funky, unique items from local artists, collectors, and home-renovators alike.
The contemporary and community galleries are both filled to the brim with artworks starting from $1, bargains in the $20 to $50 range, and nothing over $500.
To kickstart this two-week “Booty, bounty and bargains” sale, CVAG is hosting an absolutely free beach-party opening on July 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. — everyone’s welcome.
Enjoy a summer cocktail and some fresh, free hors d’oeuvres while you get the very first pick of all of the items for sale. Feel free to dress like you’re ready for the beach, or even as your favourite beach-dweller and prepare to jam to some summer oldies.
During Market Days/Local Colours in downtown Courtenay on July 21, CVAG will take the Lost Treasures exhibit outdoors onto the plaza from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., so be sure to drop by as you’re browsing Fifth Street.
Lost Treasures: Booty, Bounty and Bargains is open at the Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from July 14 and 28.
For more information, visit www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com or call 250-338-6211. CVAG is at 580 Duncan Ave. in downtown Courtenay, across from the library.
