5th Annual Bohemian Embassy Group Show Nov.7 – Dec. 19

‘Fire Goddess’ by Anna Jasiak

Over 20 years ago, the artists of Galiano came together to create the first Bohemian Embassy Show at Galiano’s South End Community Hall.   At that time, they felt their work was ‘off the beaten path’, eclectic, expressive, and unusual. The event created an embassy and they were the ambassadors of work that spoke about their place in the realm of art, poetry and music-making. This Annual Show was created to continue this idea.

‘Arbutus Point’ by Bruce Dolsen

The fine work of our local artists reflects their perceptions of Galiano Island, the Gulf Islands and surrounding area. Landscapes, florals, prints, sculpture, and abstracts all come together to draw the viewer into the experience of life on the edge, life with a fresh perspective here on the West Coast.  We have traditionally had Geoff Inverarity read his unique and perceptive poetry at the opening reception.  His performances are always bold and witty.  Geoff  will be performing again this year along with his partner Joanne Randele.  We will also be having some other guest appearances at the opening – you have to be there to see them!

‘Mountains of the North’ by Cathleen Thom

This is the 5th anniversary of having this show and it promises to be the best.  The very high level of quality and expression from so many artists makes this a fabulous show, one not to be missed!  We will also have on display many small, very affordable items that would be lovely gifts for loved ones during the holiday season.  Come to the show and support all of your favourite Galiano artists – Shop on Galiano this year!
