Parksville-based acrylic painter Nancy Day is pulling a handful of her earlier canvases out of storage to sell at to the MAC’s January White Sale.

Local artists to clear out their work closets

First-ever White Sale at MAC (Jan. 7-31) will offer local art at discount prices

Christmas will be over soon and you’ll find some post-holiday bargains with an artistic twist at the McMillan Arts in their first ever January White Sale.

“It’s kind of a free for all,” said MAC administrator Linda Matteson-Reynolds.

According to a news release from the art centre, the sale offers local artists an opportunity to sell original artwork at discount prices.

Matteson-Reynolds said this is ideal for artists who have older work that is “competing with the dust bunnies” in their studios. Each seller, who must register for the event, can bring up to 10 pieces. Matteson-Reynolds said the call to enter is open to OCAC members and non-members, and there are already more than 20 people signed up to show and sell their work.

One of those people is Parksville-based artist Nancy Day.

Day, who is not an OCAC member, said she is bringing a handful of her earlier large-canvas acrylic landscape paintings to the event.

“You end up collecting a lot of your own work,” she said. “It’s time to move them.”

Day is one of the TOSH 10 painters, who display work in that gallery, and she has also shown her canvases in Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal. The January White Sale will be her first time showing work at the MAC, however.

“I’m quite looking forward to it,” she said.

The January White Sale will run from Jan. 7-31, 2015. The event kicks off with an opening reception on Jan. 7 from 1-4 p.m.
