Stinking Fish Tour comes to Metchosin school

West-Mont Montessori hosting variety of artists under one roof

They’re calling it a School of Stinking Fish and it’s a gathering of fine arts and crafters under one roof.

West-Mont Montessori School, 4075 Metchosin Rd., is the venue for this weekend’s Stinking Fish Tour fall show, which sees some of the best and most notable artists in various mediums from around Metchosin and the surrounding area.

The range of styles and materials these artists work runs from ceramics specialists Marlene Bowman and Ann Semple to metal sculptors Bert Lambier and Bev Petow and plenty of mediums in between, such as water colours and oil painting, fibre arts and more.

The free show runs Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 14 and 15) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many art pieces will be available for purchase. For more information on the artists and other details, visit
