Last celebration being held at Coast Collective in Colwood

Gifts and Wishes, seasonal sendoff at Pendray House

The galleries at the Coast Collective are filled with artwork from a variety of genres until Dec. 20 as part of the arts centre’s Gifts and Wishes show.

The event doubles as an exhibit and a sale, but the emphasis is on presenting artful gift options for that special someone on your list. It goes from now until Dec. 20, which is the final day of operations at the historic Pendray House at the end of Heatherbell Road in Colwood.

The gallery and gift shop are open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Coast Collective supporters are also invited to a Christmas get together this Sunday (Dec. 13), to celebrate the arts centre’s seven years at the former Havenwood property. The facility will relocate to the Holiday Inn Express on Wale Road in Colwood as of Jan. 6.

RSVPs are requested for the event, which runs from 2 to 4 p.m. Call 250-391-5522 or email info@coastcollective.ca to register.
