THE ALL ISLANDS’ ART SHOW IS ALMOST OVER!
June 6th-10th is the last week to go see the show in person so get out there and go visit the museum! The entrance to the show is free for locals. With the success of last years’ virtual tour, we have decided to repeat the experience once again so we can reach out to a bigger audience. For those who need or prefer to stay home, you can enjoy the art exhibition from the comfort of your home, through our virtual tour (on our YouTube channel) or via the online gallery located on the Haida Gwaii Museum’s website.
We are grateful to Andrew McDermott, pastel artist, past President and a senior member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, for being our adjudicator this year.
ARTIST PICK UP DAY: June 11th, between 1 and 4 p.m.
We will have a volunteer at the Temporary Gallery directing artists to pick up their pieces. If you are sending someone else to pick your piece up or if your piece has sold and you have received an email about it, the name of the person picking up your piece and their contact info will be recorded by our volunteer. Thank you once again for entrusting us with your beautiful art!
