Gather the flowers but spare the buds.
- Andrew Marvell
Bloom has been a highlight of Coast Collective’s open-call shows, and 2019 marks the 11th year for this very popular event. It runs from March 13th to March 31st.
Nothing says ‘SPRING’ like flowers – from the humble dandelion, to the scented rose, to the colourful painted tongue – these artists will delight you with their varied interpretations in both 2-D and 3-D, including some unique pieces of metal sculpture.
Operated by the Society for Arts on the South Island (SASI), whose mission statement is to nurture British Columbia arts and culture … through the production and support of showcases of fine art and craft, the provision of arts education programs, public performances, and special community cultural events, Coast Collective is delighted to host this event.
Come and smell the roses at the Meet-the-Artists Reception on Saturday, March 16th from 1 to 3. As Chubby Checker once said, “I want my flowers while I’m alive.”
