A preview of the 40th Annual Members Show. Come to the gallery to see all of the amazing work.

Join the Campbell River Arts Council and the Campbell River Art Gallery in celebrating the work of local artists at the 40th Annual Members’ Show, opening January 13, 2022.

A time honoured tradition, the 40th Annual Members’ Show returns. The exhibition dates back even before the CRAG became the city’s public gallery. This year feels particularly special; we are so glad to see entries from well known artists in the community and newcomers. 

“The Members’ Show is one of the highlights of our cultural year in Campbell River,” said Ken Blackburn, executive director of the Campbell River Arts Council.  “The opportunity to witness the vast creativity and innovative spirit of our community is on full display in the Members’ Show.  It proves that we have a rich and strong cultural sector.  Our artists are amazing!”

Enjoy the work of artists from the North Island and Campbell River area as they display, never-before-shown work created in the last three years. 

Alongside the show, the gallery and council are launching a Professional Development for Artists series facilitated by Dazed and Confucius. The first seminar begins on Feb. 12, 2022. 

“Part of the Gallery’s mandate is to provide educational opportunities for our community,” said Sara Lopez Assu, executive director for the Campbell River Art Gallery. “Launching this new Professional Development series at the same time as the 40th anniversary of our Members’ Show made so much sense – we want to not only celebrate and exhibit our artists, but we also want to provide them with tools and resources to expand their practice into the professional art world.”

The Members’ Show is on display at the Campbell River Art Gallery from January 13 to February 26, 2022.
