While COVID has restricted our ability to have lovely openings and showing en plein air in Coastal BC in the winter is not at all possible...but...then comes the innovation of Zoom.
This Friday December 11th at 7 pm PST will be our first foray into the Zoom Virtual Opening and our first attendees are from across North America! We're looking forward to seeing them and we can all be without masks. I do believe I might have a glass of bubbly in hand to mark the occasion.
We have new pieces arriving every day, so there will be something new each time to see. Perhaps Friday nights will become Preview Evenings! :)
We look forward to this trial run - fingers crossed technology cooperates and remember, we can Zoom you in anytime - just set up an appointment by email.

It's been a long cold winter, but I'm sweeping out the PIGSTY and will be ready to reopen PIG for the season on April 13th - from 2 to 4 pm. In celebration of spring, come share some pink bubbles and enjoy the work of your fellow Piers Island Artists. Hope to see you there!
In our fast paced, instant gratification world...the art of oils is disappearing. The time, the detail, the layers of pigment on canvas are richly displayed in the works of Evey Gabille & Mary Jordan. We invite you to enjoy their art. Mary has many originals available for purchase with a sampling of giclees on canvas for her popular pieces. Evey has given us many beautiful pieces to show you, but she's not parting with most of them, however, giclees may be ordered.
Opening night is Friday June 29th from 7-9 pm
The exhibition will continue to July 15th - the gallery will be open weekends 2-4 pm and available by appointment.
The decorations are down, the Christmas lights put away for the year and we all take a breath and some run to warmer climes for a break from the rain and wind. It's a time to unwind and artists start anew on ideas that have been smoldering. The first signs of spring (the snowdrops and frogs croaking) get us motivated and back at our easels, benches and kilns once again. And hence the heading...PIGSTY!
The gallery has lost a bit of it's beautiful transformation while I work on some new glass pieces. I'll fly the flag when it's not a complete shambles and I'm out there working, but as always - feel free to call if you'd like to have a look around. One side of the gallery is still pristine! :)
When I look at all the wonderful artwork by our talented Piers Island artists I can't help but hum...here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus! :) We do try and keep the artist pages updates with new work and prices, but if there's anything you see that strikes your fancy and you'd like more information, please contact us. We can arrange delivery before Christmas for you.
PIG will be open by appointment Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. We hope to open Saturday December 23rd - but weather conditions may prevent this. A small hazard of island living with the holidays approaching.
Wishing you all the best for the holiday season and an art filled New Year!
Piers Island Gallery opened to a fantastic turn out of Islanders and their guests on Friday September 1st, 2017. Gallery go'ers were treated to a bit of bubbly, PIG cookies and PIG's in a Blanket - we couldn't resist!
We are in a constant state of change and renewal. As soon as a piece of artwork sells, it is replaced with something new. We want to keep the look fresh for you for every visit. There is also something for everyone, from $4 cards to $1000 paintings and glass sculpture. You'll find the famous LG Designs Piers Island Tshirts, bags & hats, cards by several artists, wine stoppers, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, plates, giclee prints, photography, photography on canvas, oils, acrylics, charcuterie & cheese boards, textile bags, kelp weaving and glass sculpture. All original work by Piers Island owners and family.
Please give us a call if you'd like to stop by, or look for the flying PIG flag!
Our Exhibition posts will tell you when something new is coming up and tease you with a few photos.
