Members Show

March 17-22, 2020

111th Annual Art Show and Sale

Every spring, the Victoria Sketch Club organizes its annual week-long Members Show 
to exhibit the work of Club members. These shows have been a major objective 
under the Club's Constitution for more than a century. Shows are normally held in the 
gymnasium of the Glenlyon Norfolk school, beautifully located in Oak Bay, one of 
Victoria's oldest neighbourhoods.

The annual exhibition featuring around 150 original paintings by members of the 

Victoria Sketch Club continues in the footsteps of early members like Emily Carr, 
Jack Shadbolt,and Max Maynard.

For the members the show is an important annual event. It is their opportunity to 

display a sample of their recent work and for the public to view and purchase those 
paintings. Typically one can view the work of about 30 participating artists working 
in a wide range of media, formats, subjects and styles.

Normally 30 to 40 works of art are sold in the Spring Show at prices that include 

the 7% PST. Since the show is presented on a break-even basis, the club charges 
member artists only a small percentage as commission to defray expenses. 
The show attracts an ever-increasing number of visitors, many of whom 
return year after year.
