Metchosin walls cry out for artists

Margie Humphreys is looking for artists to display their work at the Metchosin Community House for its Art on the Walls program.

Metchosin Community House needs some art for its walls.

This month, Art on the Walls program co-ordinator Margie Humphreys is showcasing her work because she was unable to find another artist to fill the venue.

“We do this as a service to the arts community,” she said. “We offer this so artists have a place to show and sell their art.”

Humphreys is looking for artists to display their work for both February and March in the minimal cost program.

If selected for the 12-year-old program, a featured artist pays a $10 hanging fee to cover the costs of wire. The program asks that artists offer community house 15 per cent if a work is sold.

Past media showcased include painting, photography and mosaic works.

Priority is given to Metchosin residents, but artists from across the region are encouraged to apply.

“It’s great exposure for artists we have so many community programs here in the house,” Humphreys said.

The program includes two hours free rental at the community house to host an artists’ reception.

For more call the Metchosin Community House at 250-478-5155.
