The 2023 edition is almost here and the island artists are excited to open up their doors, welcome eager guests and share the new work they have been preparing. June 3rd (10-5) and 4th (10-4) are the days when twenty studios and thirty artists will spruce up their studios and display a wide range of art and craft - everything from sculpture, painting, woodwork, glass, pottery, printmaking, jewelry and handcrafted knives to moose antler carving, literary work and even a stop at Quadra’s own winery.
Painters, printmakers, sculptors, potters, fabric artists, glass artists and more will have their work on display and many will be offering demonstrations of their techniques. Some artists prepare their displays at the community centre where there will also be a group ‘sampler’ show, delicious bistro and art prizes to be drawn for.
After the June Kick-Off Weekend visitors are still invited to take a self-directed tour of many studios on the island. Free maps and guides are available on the ferry and around the island. Come to Quadra Island and Discover the Arts!
Tickets for the two day event are only $5 (kids 12 and under free) and may be picked in Campbell River at the CR Art Gallery, in Courtenay at the Comox Valley Art Gallery or on Quadra at Inspirations in Q.Cove, Copper Coast Gallery and Gifts in Heriot Bay, Quadra resorts or at the community centre during the weekend.
