I really enjoyed the show. I hope we get back to normal next year so i can go in person again.
Thanks very much to all of the talented people involved who created such an amazing virtual show. It was very inspiring to visit the visual feast. It was almost like being in the transformed arena. I am looking forward to SFA 2022 already.
I thought the way you laid the show out with galleries was brilliant. Normally I am not a fan of virtual shows but this one had me logging back in several times. Well done!
Once again a first class professional presentation of a diverse and talented group of artists. Well done! The opportunity to watch demos and listen to talks online was a nice added feature this year. Look forward to 2022, hopefully in person.
Huge thank you to Sooke Fine Arts for another fabulous show. This year the virtual show allowing the viewers to ‘walk through’ each of six separate galleries added so much to the virtual experience. Looking forward to the show in 2022 when perhaps we will all meet to enjoy the show in person. Hats off to Sooke Fine Arts! Well done!
Wonderful job, everyone.
Dedicated people who make this an enjoyable show.
Fabulous show, a significant effort to present it online again this year. Good to have the award-winning pieces at the local arts council gallery this week. Sponsor names alongside the award winning pieces would be a nice touch, also broadening the 'where did you hear about us' survey to include digital news.
Always have enjoyed this fabulous Show!
What a fantastic show, I appreciate all the hard work that goes into this exhibition. Congratulations to all the award winners!
We have always loved the Sooke Fine Art show. We remember the late 80’s and so many more years of fabulous exhibitions.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to see the show in our living room. It’s not perfect, but it is still great to be able to see such wonderful works of art. Good luck to all the artists!
This year's virtual show is amazing. I liked the live tour as well as being able to find art by gallery. I look forward to this art show each year and exploring the talent both established and emerging. I love how arts invites us to reflect, connect and build community.
The Sooke Fine Art Show is definitely a highlight of the year in Victoria. The show brings inspiration to see such a wealth of all forms of artistic talent in all age groups. It truly is a stunning show and gives me great pleasure to see all the works of all the artists.
You put together a remarkable show under difficult circumstances & made it available to the public free of charge. Bravo! It was an honour to be included in your gallery this year. You have an amazing ‘army’ of dedicated volunteers. Kudos too all of you for making this show a success!
Really liked the format.
great idea to have the living room
and bedroom to show the pictures with changing wall colour.
At present I cannot find the place to vote for my favourite picture,
My vote is for AL.MOST SPENT.
p.s. one thing we especially missed this year was the gift shop. Though obviously not the focus of the show, the gift shop was always a nice "extra" place to browse for prints, cards and smaller pieces by locals. Though this year's show is ending, I encourage the SFAS to consider hosting an online gift shop in the future, especially towards the holidays.
Thanks for an excellent show again this year. We missed going to Sooke for the festivities this year but were happy to see local artists still find a way to have their work viewable to the public.
Wonderful annual exhibition and great Sooke Fine Arts Show online presentation! As an artist over decades I've had a nostalgic connection to Sooke Fine Arts shows since the time I lived in Victoria and was juried into at least four shows since 1987. That year I won the MOST POPULAR IN SHOW AWARD for "Eagle Country", a full sheet framed watercolour painting. My written notes in the "Fine Arts '87" publication pamphlet which I still have, where I appear on page 57, indicate I also won a "Purchase Award", though I'm not sure which of the four paintings I had in the show won that award too. Sooke Fine Arts was always so special to me, the huge wonderful venue, grand receptions and to be an artist in it all. Now living in Vancouver, I regret not being able to enter the exhibition. I congratulate all for presenting such a wonderful impressive exhibition and online site.
Thank you for doing this. I love going to the show every year, and this year, it is a new way to see wonderful artists.
Once again the show features some of the finest work from Canadian artists.
Always enjoy the Sooke Art Show. This year doesn't disappoint even though we have our Covid-19 issues to deal with.
Beautiful, beautiful and more inspiration at every click. I look forward to seeing it in person in the near future. ????????????
