In 1977 a small group of artists, inspired and lead by Comox artist Pearl Ellis, formed to establish an arts centre to display and promote study of the arts under the name of Comox Arts Society. In 1980, with interest increasing, it was renamed the Filberg Gallery Association and located on the lower floor of what was then the public library in Comox. As the art community in the Comox Valley continued to develop, volunteers founded what is now the Pearl Ellis Gallery of Fine Arts in 2005. The Gallery is now located upstairs at the same location with the entrance on Comox Avenue.
I recently sat down with my marketing coach and mapped out a course of action to market my latest book, Enchanted With Life. However, what I ended up with was a marketing plan to market myself. I had a hard time with that. But really, isn’t that what life is all about? My work is just an extension of who I am: my skills, talents, hopes, and dreams. I have to make a conscious effort to believe that I am important and that the work I do is important, and then I have to give myself permission to be proud of who I am and proud of what I do.
