NEW THIS YEAR
For the first time we are offering a studio guide that will be available all year. Metchosin and East Sooke are home to a large number of artists and artisans in all disciplines who have chosen to live and work here, finding inspiration amidst the rolling landscape and lush rain forests near the sea. The Stinking Fish Studio Guide features the best of fine art and fine craft on the southern island, surrounded by its natural beauty.
Come explore one of the richest “art trails” on the island – meet the artists, see their work and take some home with you! All are welcome. Artworks are for sale.
CHRISTMAS SALE WEEKEND - DEC. 7TH & 8TH. 10AM - 4PM at the following studios. Chiarina Loggia, Bev Petow, Detlef Grundmann, Lesley Forman, Lorraine Thorarinson Betts, Doug McBeath, Wendy and Frank Mitchell, Kathy and Selby Saluke, Peter Walsh, Ann Semple, Jennifer Kivari, Alice Mclean, Valerie and Lesley Speed, Kay Lovett, Angela Menzies, Bonnie Coulter and Marlene Bowman.
