Members in the spotlight at Pearl Ellis

Opening reception will be held Saturday, Feb. 27

On Tuesday, Feb. 23 the Pearl Ellis Gallery will kick off the first members’ show of the 2016 season showcasing over 50 local artists.

A reception will be held Saturday, Feb. 27, from 1-4 p.m., to celebrate the opening. It will be a great opportunity to meet the artists in the show and view the fabulous art.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of work by both 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 other art groups in 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 great place to visit and to shop for that unique new piece of art for one’s home, business or as a gift.

The gallery is solely run and operated by volunteers who believe in the importance of a public art gallery in Comox and provides a venue for our vast pool of local artists. Half of all donations to the gallery support the Pearl Ellis Gallery High School Bursary program.

Students interested in taking advantage of the bursaries offered through the gallery may go to the gallery website at www.pearlellisgallery.com for a bursary application and further information on how to apply.

Bursary applications may also be picked up at the gallery.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Town of Comox, the CVRD, Comox Valley Lions Club, our many members, donors and sponsoring businesses.

The Pearl Ellis is located 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 our website at www.pearlellisgallery.com or phoning the gallery at 250-339-2822.
