As we come to the close of another year, we'd like to wish everyone all the best of the season and we look forward to exploring new works by our ever growing stable of artists and authors. We began with 9 artists over 6 years ago and we are now 26 artists and authors.
We will go into PIGSTY mode until February when we launch For the Love of Art just in time for Valentine's Day. Happy New Year!!
Presents with Presence 2022
We look forward to bringing you a new show with gift giving in mind. When our show opens we will have 24 artists and 3 authors. You can also check out our Performing Artists on the web - we have 5!

Oceans - July 9th
Oceans and water plays such a role for us on Piers and it's reflected in our artists work. This show will run through to September and flow with the currents as new work is added, in with the tides. :) Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see the works as it appears. @piersislandgallery @123Piers #yyjart
The Facets of Forest - June 4th
The Forest has so many meanings and memories for all of us. For some, the forest is a magical place with gnomes and fairies, for others a peaceful spot to drink in the greens of spring and the warm colours of autumn and for all, forest bathing is a natural benefit that calms the soul. Our artist are working to bring you what the the forest inspires in them... opening June 4th, 2022 - 2 pm.
Check back after June 4th for a slideshow of available works. We're happy to bring you to the show via Zoom or Facetime. :)

Miles Lowry created this beautiful piece when Ukraine was first invaded by Russia. His hope is to raise funds for causes providing relief to Ukrainians suffering as a result of this war. The prints are offered unframed at $100 and each is numbered, although the edition is not limited. The first printing of 50 have sold out! Another printing is in the works and will soon be available.
We provide 2 links for you here to purchase your own print. Use the first link if you would like the print delivered to PIG for pick up. Use the second link if you will require delivery or will be picking up in Victoria, BC.
During the first fall of the pandemic we opened Le Petite PIG, a roadside free/exchange gallery in hopes of inspiring artists young and old to create and give in exchange for a treasure from another. It flourishes, then languishes but it's always interesting and is very much an attraction for the kids to check out anything new.
Recently a pink butterfly was placed in Le Petite and then it was taken and reappeared. The story below was sent to Piers Island Gallery. You can follow her adventure here. She hopes to be taken on other adventures and that you will photograph and share her adventures with Pauline. They will then add them to this blog post. Feel free to add a little art of your own to her wings before you put her back for another adventure.
Thanks for sharing. #pinkytuscadero #lepetitepig #youngartistyyj
