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. 💗🥂💗
Thank you for having the exhibition on line. I wish it was in the arena as usual, I love attending and seeing the art up close, the ambiance, and the music.. However you have done a great job and I hope next year we will be back to normal..
We enjoyed perusing the exhibits over coffee this weekend. Excellent idea to hold a virtual show - very well done! Hopefully next year we'll be there to view in person and run into our friends along the way!
such a treat to wander through all the beautiful work.
How I wish I could have seen it in person! Lovely work, as usual. And I would have loved to have seen the pieces this year's artists would have submitted to the Gift Shop! Maybe next year?????
What joy this website has given my husband and myself this past week. We have loved re-visiting it and am about to go through again. Just splendid, life-affirming, wonderful work, by artists and those who have made this event possible.
Congratulations everyone involved in this virtual tour!’
Fabulous Show everyone’

Really enjoyed the Purchasers show. So pleased with my purchase and the ease in which I was able to get it so quickly.
Well done staff.
Great show. Great website. The website is as much a part of the art show as the art show! Good work everyone.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to see this show.
Well done everyone!!
Beautiful show this year!
