Insert some colour into the week

The Brushworks Art Show and Sale will run until Dec. 8 (except Mondays when the gallery is closed).

No matter the weather, you can insert some colour and light into November and December by visiting the Brushworks Show and Sale at the Pearl Ellis Gallery – in downtown Comox!

In plenty of time for Christmas giving, The Brushworks Art Show and Sale will run until Dec. 8 (except Mondays when the gallery is closed).

One of the member artists will be in attendance on each afternoon that the gallery is open.

The Brushworks is a diverse painting group which includes numerous well-known local artists and long-time members. The group was established in the ’90s and has a total of 28 members who meet Wednesdays from September to June at the Lions Den.

Together they provide one another with encouragement, challenge and inspiration in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The resulting artwork is varied and impressive.

These artists are an upbeat group who welcome learning new techniques from each other and from workshops, thus keeping their work fresh and interesting. There is always a waiting list to join Brushworks, but spots do open up occasionally.

A reception for the show, which began Tuesday, will be held this Saturday. Come join us for refreshments from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Pearl Ellis Gallery at 1729 Comox Ave.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of artwork in watercolour, acrylic and oils, by established and emerging artists, in ranges of style to suit all tastes.
