Annual Qualicum Beach winter art exhibit features colours of the cold months

Paintings, photos, wreaths on display at TOSH

The Old School House Arts Centre has flipped the switch on its winter exhibit this year, going from a nearly all black-and-white theme for submissions last year, to a theme of winter colours with Hue-logue this year.

Seventy-five pieces of art are now on display at TOSH (122 Fern Rd. West, Qualicum Beach) until Dec. 21.

It features everything from paintings to photographs to wreaths made by the Mid-Island Floral Art Club

The exhibit features work submitted by hobbyists and professional artists alike, giving a broad view of local talent.

For many local artists, use of bright, saturated colour can often be an essential element of their style.

The theme of the show no doubt offers a challenge and an opportunity to pick out those colours, and to feature a variety of winter scenes, some with snow and some without.

“It’s a very colourful show, but still, they are the winter colours that we see in our landscapes here or in our homes,” said TOSH executive director Corinne James.

“We’re going to see all of (those different versions of winter), I’m sure, here on the coast in the next few months.”

As it’s done in the past, TOSH will have a silent auction for some of the wreaths in the show, with the proceeds going to charity, said James.
