‘Scrooge-approved’ art show and sale at Pearl Ellis

This Christmas fundraiser event begins Dec. 10 and runs until Jan. 26, with a meet and greet this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery in downtown Comox presents its annual Scrooge-approved art show and sale.

This Christmas fundraiser event begins Dec. 10 and runs until Jan. 26.  The opening of the show will be celebrated with a meet and greet this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

The show offers an art extravaganza of over 40 pieces priced at $400 or less. Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of work by local artists. This is an all-media event so there will be everything from paintings in watercolour, acrylic, oil, plus photography and steel.

Along with the 40 or more original pieces being brought into the show there will be three silent auctions of donated fundraiser pieces. The first will run from Dec. 10 to 19, with the second and third after the gallery reopens in January.

The proceeds from the auction go to support the gallery high school bursary program and operation costs.

Along with your Christmas shopping don’t forget the gallery offers a large array of cards, several books by local artists and 2014 calendars.

Remember, visitors to the gallery not only get a chance to see great art displays, but are able to view the wonderful displays in the Comox Archives and Museum that shares our space.

Throughout our Christmas fundraising show the gallery encourages the public, and gallery members, to drop off food items in support of the Comox Valley Food Bank.

The gallery is at 1729 Comox Ave. The gallery will close for a Christmas break from Dec. 22 to Jan. 13. For more information,  see www.pearlellisgallery.com and visit the gallery on Facebook.
