Show Information

The 2017 Sooke Fine Arts Show opens to the public July 28 – August 7, 2017

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, now celebrating its 30th anniversary, 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.

In addition to the exhibition of art, the show features special events, talks and demonstrations to engage visitors of all ages with art; connecting them with artists, fostering an appreciation of the arts and in some cases encouraging hands-on experience with the different artistic techniques on exhibit in the gallery. The Society endeavours to create an accessible experience while maintaining the highest quality of presentation.
