The Pearl Ellis Gallery will kick off its 37th summer show season with its 10th Members’ People’s Choice show and sale. This four-week exhibition will run from Tuesday June 23, to Sunday, July 19.
There will be a reception held Tuesday, June 23 from 7 – 9 p.m., which will be a great opportunity to meet the artists in the show, view the fabulous art and cast your vote.
At this show the public, as well as the members, will be encouraged to fill out a ballot selecting their favourite piece of artwork in the exhibit.
The voting will go on throughout the first part of the show and the ballots will be tabulated on Saturday, July 4 at 4 p.m.
The winners will be posted at the gallery and on our website. The winning artist will receive a $100 gift certificate from Whyte’s Framing and a plaque. There will also be a draw made from all the ballots. The winner receives a gift certificate for 20 per cent off on a piece of art that they purchase at the gallery during 2015.
Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of work by over 50 local artists, both new and established. Members receive a 10 per cent discount on purchases of art during the “opening reception” or “meet and greet” of each new show.
New memberships are always available for $20.
The gallery will be open to the public every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sundays 1 – 4 p.m. but will be closed Mondays. The gallery will be closed Wednesday, July 1 to celebrate Canada Day.
The gallery is located in Comox at 1729 Comox Avenue. FMI or a virtual tour of the gallery go to pearlellisgallery.com
