Thoroughly enjoyed this online show. The variety in subject, media and style made it a veritable feast for the eyes.

Very much missed seeing the show "in the flesh" this year. Was really pleased to see the Council pivot to the virtual version of the show. Though I am sure that the virtual images don't do the pieces justice. It is always an experience to see the work up close and personal. Cheers to all the artists!!! And here is to hoping 2021 will bring back the live show.

There are so many talented artists in the Valley. This was such a great way to still have the show.

I love the online show, so glad Astrid Notte sent me the link. Interesting to ponder each piece without other distractions. However contact with the artists is lovely too. Well done CVAC, very resourceful in these Covid times.

Wonderful exhibit! I particularly admire the fiber art, as I have tried this and I know how difficult it is. The photograph of the bee and flower made me feel happy. Great photo! Thank you for providing this exhibit. Such great talent!

Thank you for this wonderful show of the works of local artists. It is a pleasure to be able to 'attend' this year's show.

I am so glad friends in BC sent the link to this amazing site. Yesterday I was thinking (again) about using Mindfulness - being in the moment - and the exhibition made that so simply and an amazing experience. Thanks to the organizers and all the artists whose talent made my day so much more meaningful.

We are so fortunate to have so many talented people in the Cowichan Valley, and also very fortunate that, during this time when we have to be isolated from each other, we can appreciate that talent on the net. Thanks!

When a resident of the Saanich Peninsula I never gave your show a miss. What a treat now to be sitting in my Mexican home enjoying the beautiful art and talent your artists have provided. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. Kindest regards to you all. M S

This on line exhibit has far exceeded expectations for it’s well laid out presentation and it’s far reach to the world. The art is beautiful and varied. It is so encouraging to see artists participating to make it happen.

I’m loving the online presentation. It is great to be able to go back to look again and I do so more often with it being online.
