The first annual ‘Island Originals Fine Art Show’ will be held August 10th and 11th at the Marina Park in Comox. This new show has been organized by a volunteer group of artists in response to the closure of the well attended ‘Originals Only show” which has been held in the same Marina Park location for the last 16 years.

‘Island Originals’ gives experienced artists a venue to showcase their work in person, and most importantly to provide the general public the opportunity to chat with, view or purchase original art directly from the artists in a relaxed setting. The show features two- and three-dimensional work created with traditional mediums in a variety of styles, and spotlights accomplished artists residing on Vancouver Island and the outer surrounding islands.

The artists’ call-to-entry deadline for jury selection is July 19th and there is a 58 booth maximum on a first come first serve basis. See www.ioart.ca for more information.
