Threads of Hope. An exhibition of 52 artworks by 48 fiber artists, each personally interpreting hope (or lack thereof) for the future. Exhibition pieces flow from one to the other with a ‘thread of hope’ connecting them.

Heather McAllister. Heather’s vast mixed media approach creates abstractions that are powerful and poignant. From forays into textiles, encaustic, and thick bodied oils, her work delves deeply in layers to extract the very marrow of life’s moments and meanings.

Opening Jan 4
Darren Claydon. Located in Desolation Sound, painting on the shores of Savary island, Claydon brings a twist to the west coast landscape genre. Showing us small moments in the landscape and cabin life, his work is both familiar and fresh. A new view into a familiar land.


Our three galleries provide a beautiful venue for visitors to appreciate and buy works of art by professional artists from Vancouver Island Daily. Visitors have the opportunity to get a first-hand perspective of the creative process by watching our Resident Artists at work in their studios. The high quality work and craftsmanship of the nearly 150 Vancouver Island Artisans make the Gift Shop the perfect place to find that special piece.
