2021 SPAC Virtual Show Concluded

Our June virtual show has now concluded. Thank you to all our members who submitted works: without your participation, the event would not have been possible. Congratulations to all those who sold work(s)!

With the improving Covid landscape, we are looking forward to resuming in-person shows at Mary Winspear in 2022.

San Pen Hospital Update

The Saanich Peninsula Hospital Exhibition Chair & Co-chair are working on a process to remove the exhibit in the hospital. As we are not allowed into the building, we are working with the Admin Assistant in a way to take out the paintings over a period of a few weeks with her help.

We will be contacting contributing SPAC artists as we receive their work in order to organize a pick up or drop off.

When all Covid protocols have been removed from the hospital, we look forward to hanging a new show. Thank you for your patience. If you have any questions please contact

Members-Only Portal

The Feb. 8th virtual general meeting saw the launch of SPAC’s new members-only website ( which will host resources, such as artist submissions for our show(s), back-issues of Art Chat, governance material such as Board minutes, and even a forum for the exchange of art ideas, art-related tips & techniques, as well as a buy & sell section. And more will be coming as we ramp up this member resource.

You must have an account on the members-only website to access these materials. This is completely separate from your SPAC membership, although you must be a paid-up SPAC member already to get an account on the members-only website. To join, you must fill out the application form and wait for approval (so we can verify your SPAC membership). To start the application form, click on the Register for Access link at the top of side bar. To jump to that site, click on the Go to Portal link, also on the side bar.
