Westshore Town Centre is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with the West Shore Arts Council and the Coast Collective to bring the West Shore community a unique gallery and gift pop-up shop at Westshore Town Centre.
Together, they have created a space where gifted artists from the Coast Collective can display, showcase and sell their one-of-a-kind works of art to new audiences in the West Shore and beyond. The art works utilize a variety of mediums from photographs, textiles, jewellery, children’s toys, pottery, paintings and more. All will be on display in the pop-up space, ready for purchase and your enjoyment, from July 26 to October 15. Alongside these wonderfully creative works of art, Westshore Town Centre stores have added some of their latest fashion and accessory trends for your browsing pleasure.
That’s not all! In the coming months, the community can look forward to a series of free workshops for both adults and children inside of this creative pop-up space. Coast Collective artisans will be on site to do demonstrations, too!
The Coast Collective is a valuable gallery and art centre resource in our community. Their group of artists and volunteers work hard to deliver arts and cultural programs to the Capital Region. In 2016, they opened a custom gallery and gift shop at 103-318 Wale Road behind the Holiday Inn in Colwood. The gallery boasts thousands of visitors a year. Check out the GoWestShore Magazine ‘Community Events’ pages and www.coastcollective.ca for their latest workshops, shows and exhibitions.
The West Shore Arts Council serves as a lead advocate for the public understanding of, participation in and appreciation of the arts, culture and heritage and their contribution to our community. The organization is dedicated to working with local groups to facilitate shows, events and other opportunities to connect and actively engage West Shore communities in the sharing of their art, culture and heritage in ways that are meaningful to them.
