Skye Skagfeld marked the change in seasons with an art exhibit over the last two weekends at the St. Joseph’s Artist Studio in Chemainus.
Skagfeld had COVID protocols in place for the March 19-21 and 26-28 spring equinox art exhibit and many people ventured out to take a look.
“The second weekend was much slower, but there were some great comments from visitors,” Skagfeld noted. “I think it was timed well considering the new COVID restrictions.”
The next one marking the changeover to summer will be outdoors and then she plans to wait before making any decision about the show that will transition into fall in September.
“It’s good to know that people feel safe to come to the art shows,” Skagfeld indicated. “Mostly they were couples or singles.”
Sharing and exposure is the primary objective for her, although she did manage to sell a few paintings as well.
Patrons also made remarks about signage so Skagfeld intends to look into improvements that will draw people to the site. She’s also working on a website with the capability to share with a wider audience.
