Artist Exhibition: Banner Project 2020

The Cowrie Street Banner Project began in 1994 as a joint venture between the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce and the Sunshine Coast Arts Council. In approximately 2003, the priorities of the Chamber of Commerce changed, and the project is now sponsored entirely by the Sunshine Coast Arts Council. From 1994–2014 the banners decorated Sechelt’s Cowrie and Wharf streets. As of 2014, the banners are hung in Sechelt’s Civic Square creating their own outdoor gallery.

Art Exhibition: Marlene Lowden – Blue Painted Poems

to Dec 31st. When talking about abstract art, I often compare it to poetry. Like poets, us painters take the familiar and present it to you in a way that invites you to engage. In this series, I’m layering bits of shells, bark from trees and lines from the light on the ocean to share my reverence for the West Coast landscape. All of this comes together through my abstract (or poetic) heart.
