...opens on Friday, December 2, with an evening event from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. The show runs through the weekend, Saturday December 3rd and Sunday December 4th, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. This invitational, juried show presents art works from all the members of the Art Alchemy Collective as well as well as many other local artists. Art Alchemy is situated at 362c, 10th Street in Courtenay.

What sets a square foot show apart from other shows is that every piece of high quality, original art is the same size, 12” x 12”, and the same price, $200. All other studio work is put away, and the entire studio space is transformed into an intoxicating patchwork of one of a kind paintings. Wine, cheese, and other refreshments and appetizers will be served. Come and meet the artists to chat about their work, choose the perfect gift for that special person on your Christmas list, or add to your own collection. At $200, these square foot beauties are a great price. Get there early to choose your favourites; the paintings will be flying off the walls!
