See and buy some great local art

The Cowichan Valley Arts Council’s annual show and sale hits the Island Savings Centre in Duncan from April 29 to May 3. Following yesterday’s official opening, the show offers art lovers of all kinds the chance to check out the many wonderful selections from the Valley’s huge list of creative talents.

The show is being mounted at the Portals gallery and the adjoining Cowichan Suite and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 29 to May 1, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 2 and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on closing day, May 3. The entry fee for visitors is $5 each and as always CVAC is offering a People’s Choice award so be sure to pick up your ballot and make your choice.

There are two prize packages valued at more than $1,800 apiece being raffled off this year as well, so you have two chances to win on each ticket you buy.
