The Artcraft Showcase Gallery

Each year the Artcraft showcase gallery curates four high quality exhibitions on the stage at Mahon hall.  These can be individual shows or collaborations between artists, can be in any medium and encompass any genre from fine craft to conceptual art. The aim is to produce a summer series of public gallery quality exhibitions, allowing local artists the space and audience to showcase their work and stretch themselves in new directions.

2018 details:

This year there will be 4 showcases, as ever, but with a twist. Art craft, the host of the Showcase series, is turning 50 years old, and to celebrate the first Showcase is going to be a group show featuring the guilds of Salt Spring. The arts and crafts guilds have been involved with Artcraft since its inception in 1968 and we are delighted to recognize their importance to the success of what is BC’s longest running fine arts and crafts show.
