Meet the artists March 2 during Casting Shadows show at Coast Collective

There’s no need to be afraid of shadows, not when it comes to the new show starting next week at the Coast Collective Art Centre in Colwood.

For Casting Shadows, an open-call show with a new theme tackled by the gallery, 27 artists submitted works that illustrate the use of shadows to create evocative and interesting images. The mix includes everything from paintings, photographs and sculptures to textiles, mixed media and more. There’s even a lamp made from upcycled automotive parts!

The show opens Feb. 27 and runs through March 10. The public is invited to a meet-the-artists reception on Saturday, March 2 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Centre, 318 Wale Rd. in the Holiday Inn Express and Suites building.

The Centre, operated by the Society for Arts on the South Island (SASI), is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. For more information visit coastcollective.ca, call 250-391-5522 or send an email to gallery@coastcollective.ca.
