Our PIG reopening had to be pushed back to November 21st, 2020 and we are looking forward to unveiling new works from our artists. The PIGSTY will once again be tidy and lovely, festooned with treasures for the special people on your list. COVID isolation time has spurred some artists on, but has also kept some from returning to Piers and still others from finding their muse. For all artists, it has been a difficult time, as art is created to be shared. We will be sharing with you safely and ask you to wear a mask.
We remind our patrons that we are more than happy to offer private viewings for you, your family and friends whenever they might visit Piers.
We hope to see you for the opening on November 21st 2-4 pm and over the next few weeks as you look for special things for special people.

After a delayed opening...PIG opened the doors again on Thursday December 6th showing off the beautiful new creations of her talented artists. Here are just a few images of pieces that are still available to fulfill wishes on your Christmas list. We'll have some new kelp weavings in from Grant Warrington next weekend...your last weekend before Christmas. :)
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.
Lone Gardner is a Piers Island artist who spends her life between Piers and Calgary, Alberta. Her subject matter of gardens, mountains and seas all share a unique and appealing palette of colours and a painterly feel. She paints with acrylic on canvas and all work in the show will be originals and available for purchase.
We invite you to take in Lone's work and meet the artist on Friday May 18th between 7 and 9 pm. PIG will also be open Saturday and Sunday from 2-4 pm and please feel free to call for a private showing.
We are pleased to be able to offer high quality giclee prints on canvas of Valerie Rolfe's newest works. Printing is done using premium inks on canvas, stretched onto either 1.5 inch boards, or .75 inch boards. The deeper boards give what's termed as a "gallery wrap" finish that is not usually framed and ready to hang. If you prefer to frame your art, the .75 inch depth would be your choice, but it will be ready to hang as well. If no choice is indicated in the order form below - the piece will be "gallery wrap" depth.
All canvases are then finished with a varnish coat to protect them.
These will be produced in various Limited Editions quantities of 30.

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!
Long weekends are a busy time for friends and families and if you bring yours to Piers, pop by PIG and have a look. New work is coming and going all the time, so there is likely something new for you to see.
Watch for the PIG flag Saturday from 2-4 pm and Sunday from 1-3 pm. Friday and Monday, please feel free to call even if the flag is not flying.
Our Exhibition posts will tell you when something new is coming up and tease you with a few photos.
