The art community surrounding Qualicum Beach is coming together for an event this weekend.

The Winter Art Walk will feature eight art-related locations/events around Qualicum Beach from November 22 to 24.

“What that enables people to do is really get to know our area and see our artists, some of them in their own environment,” said organizer Dee Aguilar.

The event includes 10 venues and over 200 artists in three days.

The Original Christmas Art Faire is celebrating 33 years in the Community Hall, and will have many professional and well-loved local artists at the show including Ted Jolda’s glass work, Wendy Maurer’s torched glass and Dee and Larry Aguilar’s pottery. The event runs Friday 11 a.m.- 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

A Winter Victorian Tea will take place at The Old School House Arts Centre in partnership with the Qualicum Beach Museum Society offering sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries using vintage tableware. There will be piano music at the event, and on Friday the Men in Accord Choir will sing, while on Saturday there will be a vintage fashion show from Merlyn Patten’s collection of ‘50s and ‘60s party wear.

The Mid Island Floral Art Club will have the place looking magical with holiday decorations. There are two sittings daily for the event at 1 and 3 pm on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $15 or $50 for a table of 4. Proceeds from the tea will help support the two organizations. Phone 250-752-6133 to reserve. There is also plenty of art to view, along with resident artists at work and the gift shop will be open downstairs all three days.

The Qualicum Weavers and Spinners will have their annual show and sale featuring one-of-a-kind creations from clothing to home decor at the Rotary House at 211 Fern Rd. W. There will also be demonstrations.

The Parksville Quilters at St. Stephen’s Church on Village Way will be presenting their annual sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with eye-catching pieces from traditional quilts to artsy pieces.

The Art Worx Gallery at 701 Primrose St. has an extensive collection of stunning fine art and the Gallery @ Qualicum Art Supply, with its incredible collection of local art work, will have members from DeCosmos Fine Art Society working on pieces as well as jewelry demonstrations. It is located at 206 W First Ave.

The Oceanside Art Gallery invites guests to explore works by some of Canada’s finest and emerging artists in the boutique-style family run gallery at 3-172 W Second Ave. Local artist Carey Anderson will be on-site both Saturday and Sunday afternoon to demonstrate his loose, impressionistic style of painting.

Residents will find handmade functional pottery at Darrel Hancock’s studio at 3505 Harris Crescent in Whiskey Creek and Rebekah Anne Designs will showcase both delicate and statement jewelry pieces at 444 Namqua Road.

 

Art displays will also be up at the Qualicum Beach Library. For more on the Winter Art Walk visit www.qbtosh.wix.com/winter-art-walk.
