Surrounded by Water. The title is the definition of an island – but that doesn’t mean the work has a marine theme. Our goal is to celebrate regional artistic talent from Sooke to Cumberland in our centrally-located, spacious gallery. The 21 artists involved each have unique perspectives on living on the coast. The resulting show is a powerful amalgam of creative talent from Natasha van Netten’s wire Superpod orca installation and David Goatley’s whimsical parade scene to work by other well-known artists including Anouk Hartwell, Laurel HIbbert, Dorothy Friesen, Jo-Anne Westerby, Bonnie Stebbings, Claudia Lohmann, Pattiann Withapea, Michael Dean, Pauline Dueck, Gill Riordan, Catherine Taron, Susan Purney Mark, Ilka Bauer, Carole Finn, Sue Smith, Maureen Walker, Robbie Stroud, Darin Corbiere and Rory MacDonald.
