Vancouver Island School of Art 10th Anniversary Gala


We are delighted to announce that the Canoe Brewpub has turned over its entire venue to us for our anniversary celebration on Sunday, October 19, 7-10 pm. The gala event will include food, complimentary drink, and entertainment by local band Sidecar, and renowned Victoria DJ Benji Duke, and magician The Great Giffoni. CTV’s Adam Sawatsky will be our Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Each table will offer an assortment of drawing materials who wish to doodle, draw, or write poems or notes to be displayed on our Wall of Art for all to see. In addition, all participants will be provided with a complimentary VISA Turns 10 commemorative sketchbook.

The event will also feature a live art auction moderated by the dynamic Alison Ross from Kilshaw’s. Five large scale pieces from selected artists will be up for auction (Sherrard Grauer, Laura Harris, Jeremy Herndl, Rick Leong and Sara Robichaud).
