The Roaming Gallery provides local businesses the opportunity to grace their walls with a display of original artwork by local artists. It provides an opportunity for local artists to showcase their work in more venues around town on an exclusive basis for 2 month at a time.
Pieces are offered for sale and the customer contacts the Artist directly to arrange the transaction. Artists work 1 on 1 with the businesses and the RG Coordinator manages the logistics of who goes where and when.


The Art Space program at the Juan de Fuca Rec Centre provides the opportunity to bring your art out into the community. Pieces are offered for sale and all sales are handles by CC.  The art display changes approx. every two months.  The Art Space Coordinator emails artists ahead of time, artists meet at JDF at the appointed time to pick up their work, drop off new work and possibly stay to help hang the next show. If a piece sells, the artist is required to pick it up at JDF and deliver it to CC for the buyer to pick up from there.
