Coast Collective Gallery: Varied genres and styles on exhibit this fall

Meet artist Michael Haasjes at the gallery from 1-3 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 7

Fall can be a busy time for artists, with the colours around Greater Victoria changing, the activity list heightened and the scenery spectacular.

The Coast Collective Art Centre in Colwood is partnering with various local artists this fall, as it presents several exhibitions of their works. Here’s a quick list of what’s on now and coming up:

Blown Ashore – Beach Treasures and Fine Feathers – On now through Sept. 8, brings together detailed realistic paintings by Elaine Morton and wirework seaglass jewellery by Jessica Stein that examine the treasures to be found on the margin where sea meets sky.

Michael Haasjes – Landscapes in Oil – Sept. 4-15, meet-the-artist reception on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 1-3 p.m. This solo exhibition will feature local landscapes and seascapes, painted en plein air and in studio by Michael Haasjes, who has been painting for 30 years.

Elaine L. Hughes’ Moments in Time shows at the Coast Collective Gallery in Colwood from Sept. 11-22, with a special meet-the-artist reception Sept. 15 from 1-3 p.m. Painting by Elaine L. Hughes

Elaine L Hughes – ReVisions: A Show About Moments in Time – Sept. 11-22, meet-the-artist reception on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 1-3 p.m. It has been contended that the difference between science and art is that, when an artist paints, he or she is painting a particular moment in time, and that the process of doing so not only changes the artist, but the artist’s world, making it impossible to replicate the result. What changes, it seems, is the artistic vision. In this exhibit, come join Elaine L Hughes as she explores this concept, through a series of pairs of paintings of identical scenes.

Sweet Harmony – Music & Art – Sept. 18-29, meet-the-artists reception on Friday, Sept. 20 from 7-9 p.m. For this open call exhibition, the Coast Collective invited artists to send interpretations of their favourite music in any visual medium. We will also have live music performed at various times throughout the exhibition. Please see our website for the live music schedule.

Megan Evans – a Decade of Creative Sparks – Oct. 2-13, meet-the-artist reception on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 1-3 p.m. This is a solo exhibition of artwork by Megan Evans, a Victoria born visual artist and indie author who has been a member of the Victoria Arts Council since 2006 and recently joined the Sooke Arts Council. She has participated in many local shows including the annual LOOK show and rotates paintings around Langford/View Royal with the Coast Collective’s Roaming Gallery. For Megan, art has not only become a channel for self-expression, but a therapeutic process for coping with chronic pain and depression. She has been creating art since childhood, but when she entered her teens, it played and even greater role when Megan was diagnosed with the spinal disease, Spondylolisthesis. Painting allows her to focus on positive things like the beauty of nature, self discovery, and learning new skills.

The Coast Collective Art Gallery is located at 103-318 Wale Rd. in the Holiday Inn Express building in Colwood.
