Thanks to Adam, Bill and VICKI for this week's pics.
Vicki says this was a lovely morning despite a few parking challenges,
and the Art in the Barn was also really wonderful,
including prints by our own Charlotte Haggart, lovely weather too.


News of Plein Air in the Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral is inviting artists to come and sketch both inside and outside on the grounds this summer. We have prizes and an art show for the participants in the fall. It will be a really festive atmosphere. Guidelines: When: Artists may set up anywhere outdoors on the Cathedral precinct seven days a week. The interior of the cathedral will be accessible to artists from 8.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Within the cathedral building, artists may set up in any area open to the public. Some exceptions may apply during services of public worship, or other events such as concerts. Who: The Cathedral welcomes individuals and small groups, and artists of all ages and abilities. Groups of more than five are urged to contact the Cathedral Office in advance at 250.383.2714 to ensure that space is available. Prize sponsors include Opus Art Supplies and the Vancouver Island School of Art. Regards, Susan Susan Down
