World-Class Island Art

Celebrating it’s 34th anniversary in 2020, it is Vancouver Island’s longest-running juried fine art show, and the region’s premier summer arts event. The Show provides the opportunity for the finest artists from Vancouver Island and BC’s coastal islands to showcase and sell their work.
