Comox Valley artist Joe Smith will hold a two-day solo exhibition and sale of his work this Saturday and Sunday at the Filberg Lodge in Comox.

Smith, who has become known for his realistic approach to painting West Coast and local scenes, will be on hand both days of the show to greet visitors and answer questions about his art.

Traditionally, Smith exhibits at Filberg Lodge three times a year. He says the Lodge’s unique rustic interior provides a natural backdrop that enhances his work. Visitors to the show at Filberg Lodge can get a real sense of what life was like living in this part of the world. At the same time, through Smith’s work, they can get a sense of  why B.C. is called supernatural.

Another bonus, according to Smith, is the opportunity to take a tour of the Valley and parts on the Island without having to spend a fortune on gas.

With the emphasis on landscapes and familiar scenes, Smith’s work has been noted for its sense of serenity.

“I think that is something we all strive to find,” says Smith.

With this being the last weekend the Tea House will be open before winding down for the season, in addition there is a plant sale on Saturday for garden enthusiasts and a shake splitting demonstration that highlights the new shake roof the lodge is receiving.

Filberg Lodge is located at 61 Filberg Rd. in Comox. Smith’s show will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
