The Pearl Ellis GallerySpring Members’ Show opens Tuesday, March 10, showcasing over 65 local artists. A reception will be held Saturday, March 14, 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 the how to apply. Bursary applications may also be picked up at the gallery.
