Do you love exploring art galleries and supporting local artists? Are you looking for something to do in Ucluelet this spring? Perhaps this upcoming event can help you! From March 16 to 25, the Black Rock Oceanfront Resort will be the hosting venue for this year’s Artsplash! Annual Art Show. It is held annually by the Pacific Rim Arts Society and is the largest non-juried art show on the West Coast!
For 10 days, there will be a different display of original works of art for sale created by over 60 member artists from BC to Alberta. Expect to see a variety of beautifully crafted works such as paintings, photography, woodworks, pyrography, encaustics, and much more.
Come and see as well the Artist in Action from 1pm to 4pm daily. They will be displaying their skill as an artist and chatting with visitors, buyers, gallery owners, and fellow artists.
Cast your vote on your most favourite pieces from the display. The piece that receives the most votes will be featured as the poster image for the following year.
These are the artists who will be featured in this year’s show:
- March 17-18 – Marla Thirsk
- March 19 – Dar Sword
- March 20 – Kelly Deakin
- March 21-22 – Crystal Crossman
- March 23 – Esther Sample
- March 24 – Denise Paluck
This event will take place around the same time as this year’s Pacific Rim Whale Festival. It is also the perfect opportunity to find the special something you have been looking for, whether it’s for your home, your best friend, your very own B&B – the possibilities are endless!
