Sooke Fine Arts Show, the largest juried art show on Vancouver Island, maybe in BC. For those who have never been this is not a “craft show or Market”
The Sooke Fine Arts Show provides the opportunity for the finest artists from Vancouver Island and BC’s coastal islands to showcase and sell their work. The Show, coming into its 29th year, is Vancouver Island’s longest-running juried fine art show and the Island’s premier summer arts event.
The 11-day art show and sale draws more than 8000 art lovers from Canada, the US and abroad. More than 375 works of original island art are on display in a stunning, 17,000-square-foot gallery at the SEAPARC complex on Sooke Harbour. Visitors can also enjoy daily artist demonstrations, talks, guided tours, live music, gift shop and bistro.
Along with this are special event evenings, Purchasers Preview, and Taste of Sooke, I love the taste of Sooke event night! Wine, Art, Food and entertainment, the perfect mix for wonderful night out. Well maybe a martini bar, I will add that to the suggestions we now have a vodka distiller in our quirky little town of Sooke. Sherringham Distillery. back to the show, there are Artist demo’s happen through out the duration of the show, children events and a seniors tea. just to name a few. anyone travelling to Vancouver Island should plan to put the event on their list of things to do. Oh, and yes I have a piece in the show once again, (i got lucky)
