66th SPAC Spring Art Show Concludes

And now, the last words…

It was fantastic! We set records on all counts, we had excellent reviews from our attendees, and we had terrific involvement of our membership.

The standard of art was wonderful, with a great mix of styles and mediums. We sold more pieces of traditional “art” than ever before.  The craft tables, and standing sculptures, created a veritable “Aladdin’s cave”.  Our show attendees tell us that they particularly enjoy the mix of art and craft that we provide.

Thank you to all our patrons, clients, sponsors, volunteers, and the committee. This year’s annual show was made possible by efforts of a 360+ volunteers, and 40 committee chairs.

We all deserve a big pat on the back for a job VERY WELL DONE!

See you in 2020!

– Wendy Woollard, 2019 SPAC Show Chair

Point of View Show
Point of View Show is on display in the foyer at Mary Winspear Centre and it looks fabulous! There have been many wonderful comments on the variety and quality of the artwork. The show will stay up until the end of May.

The Point of View photo (see below) was taken in Canoe Cove and is one of 10 that were submitted by Sidney Shutterbugs Camera Club – all photos this year had a local theme.

The Point of View display is one of our most anticipated shows of the year. Mary Winspear staff say more people come in specifically to see the Point of View than any other regular display they offer. Sales are good as well!

Saanich Peninsula Hospital Art Exhibit
Spring changeover occurred on Tuesday May 7, 2019. A huge thank you to Cathy, Melinda and Nicola for all their efforts at coordinating, hanging and promoting the Hospital Exhibit. The art will remain on display for 3 months and we’re anticipating record sales again!

SPAC and social media
SPAC has its own Facebook page which can be found at www.facebook.com/groups/1555722464680944/. Our Social Media Chair, Susan Siemens, has also set up Instagram! You can contact her at spacmem2@shaw.ca, subject line ‘Social Media‘  or on the facebook page.

This is really exciting as we can all show samples of our artwork on it – a perfect and easy way to show our talent to the world. There will be lots of links to art magazine articles, seminars & videos and tips on art making. Everyone is invited to contribute. FYI – Susan will help with ‘technical issues’!
