Celebrating Our Art and Culture
A group of five local artists: Marcela Strasdas, Deborah Czernecky, Barbara Giuliany, Terri Rodstrom and Sharlene Stushnov-Lee are taking the lead in developing a new and different kind of art centre. Beautiful surroundings. An affordable showcase for Fine Art. A place to visit, relax and learn. A place to bring people together to celebrate our rich cultural heritage on the Westshore.
|The Coast Collective Art Centre is housed in Pendray House (formerly Pacific Centre) as part of Havenwood at Esquimalt Lagoon. This development, now in the planning stages, is expected to become one of the most innovative community developments in Canada. Nestled between a picturesque migratory bird sanctuary and some of the most spectacular urban forests in North America, Havenwood to honour the past while building a holistic and sustainable vision for the future.|
The Coast Collective Gallery hosts juried themed shows of work by local artists, one-man and group shows. Adjudication fees and hanging fees are kept low to provide an affordable venue for Fine Art.
The Coast Collective Gift Shop carries excellent quality original work by local artists in a full range of prices. We include stories about the work or the artist wherever possible.
Coast Collective Classes and Workshops are offered in a wide range of media and disciplines, from diverse cultures, for people of all ages and all skill levels by well known and talented local artists. Special workshops by renowned national and international artists scheduled periodically.
We plan Coast Collective Arts Events regularly to share our local arts and culture with the community. We will collect stories about Pendray House from those who have known it in all its many incarnations to build a “people’s history” of this special place.
The Coast Collective at Esquimalt Lagoon is a dynamic, exciting centre promoting local art and culture. A destination for tourists and local residents alike, the elegant gallery and gift shop showcase the best work of Island artists, young and old, famous or just emerging. Exceptional, innovative instructors encourage the pursuit of excellence – and fun!
