Home a showcase for local artists

Once every two years, local artists display their work in Val Gavin's home.

Several local artists will be gathering in Chemainus for a show that comes around once every two years.

The show takes place at Val Galvin’s house, 10087 Chemainus Rd, on October 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be coffee and an assortment of goodies.

The rug maker started the show to promote not only her art, but other local talent who do not always attend shows and sales. This is the fifth show.

“I thought it would be more fun to have some other local artists around. These people don’t normally go out to the Christmas bazaars.”

Artists range in styles from fibre artists to weavers, recycled metal, driftwood painters and painters. There are 12 artists showing their work at the Galvin’s home.

This edition of the art show will also feature The Chronicle’s cartoonist, Rob Kernachan, who will be featuring his original artwork.

“It’s going to be a wild and crazy time,” said Galvin.
