Gage Collective members Kenna Barradell, Yvonne Freigang, Deirdre Kelly and Natalie Shumka, have been juried into the Sooke Fine Arts Show. The show will have 375 works from artists spanning Vancouver Island and surrounding BC coastal islands, and is the largest juried event in our region. It opens at 10 am daily from July 24 – Aug. 3 at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex in Sooke. http://sookefinearts.com/ This is the third year of three that I have been accepted into this show. It is wonderful to be included amongst such talented artists! I am always surprised by the pieces that are chosen by the jurors. It is a reminder that our different experiences inform our appreciation of art; that our interests are as diverse as our numbers.
