Art from the Attic

With over 500 artworks to show, TOSH can't be picky about presentation

Executive Director at TOSH Corrine James is impressed with the quality and quantity of art work on sale until March 30 during the Art from the Attic Sale.

When art work is exhibited at The Old School House Arts Centre in Qualicum Beach (TOSH) great care is taken to ensure the work is displayed professionally but when you have over 500 pieces to show you can’t be picky about presentation.

In all, 560 pieces of art came through the door on March 17 for the 7th Art from the Attic Sale and are now hanging in three galleries, a hallway and leaning everywhere.

If you love art fairs and you want a good bargain, this is the show for you and the markdowns have already started.  Executive Director at TOSH Corrine James pulled out the red pen on Friday March 23 and bargain hunters can pick up some art work at rock bottom prices.

James said people are sure to find something special and unique from among the quality artwork being presented at the sale.

“There are paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolour and pastel depicting a variety of themes such as floral, landscape, abstract or representational along with prints and photos,” she said and added, “it is an ideal time to brighten your home with something new to hang on the wall.”

Prices start as low as $5.00 and range up over $1000.00 for high end art such as a beautiful Norman Rockwell print.

The big garage sale which is a fundraiser for TOSH runs until March 30.
