Opening this weekend is a solo exhibit with works from Valerie Rolfe. We will have a wonderful selection of originals she is now ready to part with and a great selection of giclee prints on both paper and canvas.
We'd love to say Hello and we're sure you'll love to see this lovely new work from Valerie available in giclee on canvas, titled - Hello.
Valerie's show runs from May 15th to June 6th and we invite you to visit us on weekends from 2-4 pm or by appointment for a private viewing for you or your bubble and of course, Zoom, Facetime and Skype viewing are always available as well.
Masks are still a MUST at PIG with hand sanitizer on your way in.

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. :)
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.

Our upcoming show at PIG features the works of the very talented Valerie Rolfe. She's brought to the gallery a variety of pieces for this one woman show that is refreshing, captivating and offers insight into a few causes that are dear to Valerie's heart and are reflected in her work. We invite you to visit her website to learn more about the background stories on these wonderful paintings. In the meantime - feast your eyes on just a few of the original pieces that will be on exhibit in the show.
Some work is not for sale, but available as a limited edition giclee by request.
We invite you to join us for a Sneak Preview on Thursday March 29th - 7 - 8 pm and
Saturday March 31st 2-4 pm & Sunday April 1st 2-4 pm as well as by appointment.
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!
Oh, I know...you think...it's November still! But it always sneaks up on us and every year we seem amazed how suddenly it is the week before Christmas with so much to do! PIG is here to help you find awesome gifts for everyone on your list. We've asked our artists to bring us small works for December, but as soon as they are in - you'll see them on our Facebook page. :)
A few ideas for you here...all under $150 from all of our artists.
Not on Piers? Yes, we can ship!

From kelp weavings & textile works to original oils & acrylics, we have something to offer every art lover. We also accept letters to send to your Santa with your wishes and we use express post, as in many cases - there is only one original piece!
Also on hand will be the PIA desk and wall calendars for 2018, perfect stocking stuffers for the whole family.
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.
