Small Works stick around to Christmas

Eclectic’s Small Works exhibition offers diverse selection

See work by Jennifer McIntyre at Eclectic.

Small Works brings an array of art and artists to Eclectic this winter.

“Every year it creates a lot of buzz because we have about 25 artists and often we introduce new artists to the gallery as well art at this time,” said gallery owner John Taylor.

All artists are local, with the exception of Mark Brennan who hails from Halifax but painted Island scenes this summer.

“When it comes to small works it seems like it allows (the artists) to be more playful,” Taylor said.

“Some of them will do something completely different.”

The array of artists, their playful nature and the fact they’ll each have three to five works in the show creates a varied selection of artwork.

“We really want to encourage people to buy local art and consider collecting it,” Taylor said. “We keep it up for two months so people can come in a and view it and consider as gifts for Christmas. Everything is below $500 and a lot of them are below $200 even.”

Eclectic is also among the galleries participating in the annual Oak Bay Gallery Walk from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 3. “It’s always a big art fling.”
