Qualicum beach art show schedules

There's no shortage of eye candy for the artistically inclined

Several local artists will be on hand a the Winter Festival, being held at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre, including Qualicum Beach artist Rod Smith (Galuyagmi “Great First Birth”).

He will showcase his work which include sculptures, masks, poles, original paintings, bowls and bentwood boxes.

Smith, who apprenticed with his father, works in yellow and red cedar as well as basswood, arbutus, and maple. Smith is best known for his precise and elegant painting style.

Artist Peggy Burkosky works from her Qualicum Beach studio where family, friends, and Westcoast beauty inspire her.

Subjects that move Burkosky to paint are closely connected to her own life experiences, fishing with both her father and her husband.  Through her paintings and drawings, she loves to capture the rugged beauty and simplicity of a fishing lifestyle that embraces the coastal peoples and shorelines of the Pacific Northwest.

An outstanding exhibition and sale, by local professional artisans is at The Village Christmas Arts Faire and includes:

Wendy Maurer with torched glass, Ted Jolda with glass art and crafts, Anne-Marie Veale with pottery, Kees Luchs with unique wood gifts, Armando Dos Santos with leather artifacts, Lucinda Hepting with fiber arts, stone sculptor Del Mark and Potters Larry & Dee Aguilar.  Guest Artists’ include Laura Hilts painting, Debbie Goodman paper collage, Mike Yip on birds and Ruth LaFontaine with silver jewelry.
