NATURE OF ISLAND ARTISTS

SEPTEMBER 22 -OCTOBER 8TH, 2018         9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

WHERE:  GOLDSTREAM NATURE HOUSE, GOLDSTREAM PROVINCIAL PARK

The cedar panel walls of the Goldstream Nature House are about to be transformated from Nature House extraordinnaire to Nature Art Gallery featuring nature inspired art pieces in all mediums.  From September 22nd until October 8th, 2018 when you open the doors to the Nature House you will experience the quintessential locale for art work inspired by our outdoor world. The biennial Nature of Island Artists Art Show.

For well over 20 years the Nature of Island Artists Art Show has been a unique fundraiser, put on by RLC Park Services and Habitat Aqcuisition Trust, where proceeds from the sales support the nature education programs here at Goldstream. Pieces submitted by artists are either sold outright, or by a minimum donation bid; some pieces are entirely donated and ALL the proceeds work towards our efforts.

Please join us in the Park and come see if any of these nature inspired art pieces captures your heart.

Now we look forward to another great show with many returning artists and are pleased at the new artist entries. If you are interested in participating in this year’s show, please contact us ASAP.  For more information regarding the show, please contact the Nature House at 250-478-9414 or goldstream@naturehouse.ca
