The Pearl Ellis Art Gallery is pleased to announce it is re-opening on August 6 with an exhibition by local artist, Kay Larson. Born in the Maritimes, Kay has lived in the Comox Valley for twenty-six years; the ocean has never been far away. Mostly self-taught, she dabbled in a few art courses at North Island College when she was younger. This is her first solo exhibition, showcasing ten years of painting in the evenings. Kay uses oils to portray West Coast themes, along with modern and vintage subjects. You may discover an arbutus tree, a mermaid, sailboat, raven or take in a view from a different perspective. From time to time during the exhibition, Kay’s son Des Larson will be dropping in to play acoustic music.
The exhibition runs August 6-22, with limited hours. The Gallery will only be open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10:00 am-2:00 pm for now. All BC Worksafe COVID-19 protocols are in place. Signage for direction and spacing has been installed. Hand sanitizer is mandatory and available at the door. Gallery capacity is limited to six people at a time.
