Yesterday, August 10th, was the 10th Annual Bowker Creek Art Show & Sale in Oak Bay, Victoria, BC. It was a beautiful warm sunny day, with no wind! When you live on an island, no wind is a blessing. The art enthusiasts came out in droves and helped celebrate the arts in many forms. From paintings to pottery, stained glass to wood turning, sculpture to photography, the 35 artists demonstrated their art forms and interacted with the public. As you can see from the photos below Bowker Creek is a wonderful venue for an art show, with huge leaf canopies creating cool shade, and lovely dappled light along the banks of the creek.
Thanks to everyone who came out and showed so much enthusiasm for the arts, and great interest in the process of our art making. Thanks also to those who participated in the public art piece. It was a lot of fun seeing people making their mark for the first time ever.
Many thanks to all the artists who volunteered to make this event such a success. Everyone involved helped in some way to make the day happen, and as Joanie says, "It takes a village...".
