Group meets Thursday at Holy Trinity Church in Sooke

The Sooke Fine Arts Society kicks off the planning for this summer’s Sooke Fine Arts Show with a special meeting on Thursday (Feb. 7) at Holy Trinity Church.

The meeting is open to the public.

“It takes a tremendous level of support from our community to put on the show, with 300 volunteers involved from gallery construction to ticket sales,” said Geraldine McGuire, society president.

This year marks a transition in leadership as Christa Brenan steps down as executive director, after three years with the Sooke Fine Arts Society.

She’ll be replaced by longtime Sooke resident Terri Moore.

The 2018 Sooke Fine Arts Show broke a record with 9,000 people passing through the turnstile. This year’s show is from July 26 to Aug. 5 at SEAPARC arena.

Thursday’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. Holy Trinity Church is located at 1962 Murray Rd., in Sooke.
