About the Sooke Fine Arts Show

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, which is celebrating its 34th anniversary in 2020, is Vancouver Island’s longest-running juried fine art show.

About our 2020 Virtual Show

As per the SFAS Board’s decision in March, 2020, we will be moving forward with a Virtual Show in light of the COVID-19 pandemic (see our homepage for the most recent messaging).

We will have more information about the 2020 Virtual Show here soon!

Next Year is our 35th Anniversary!

Visit the show again in 2021! The 11-day art show and sale draws more than 9,000+ 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 near Sooke Harbour.

In addition to the exhibition of art, the show houses a Gallery Gift Shop, which is packed full of delightful and affordable handmade gift items made by exhibiting artists. The show also features a variety of 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.
