Nine artists showcasing their work at a home in Qualicum Beach

Nine established Island artists will be exhibiting their favourite drawings at the biennial Art by the Beach summer garden party in Qualicum Beach.

The artists participating in the 2016 Art by the Beach are Bill Friesen, Dan Gray, Don Jean-Louis, Marci Katz, Robert Kinnard, Lynn Orriss, Clive Powsey, Joe Rosenblatt and Ed Varney

They will pay homage to drawing as an expressive medium by exhibiting their work to the public on Saturday, Aug. 13 between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 221 Elizabeth Ave., just off Memorial Avenue and Island Highway 19A.

People can enjoy some refreshments as they browse through the diverse works on display around the garden. In case of rain, the show will move inside.  People may access the art show from the Highway or Elizabeth Avenue.
