A taste of Quadra art

A new element has been added to the creative offerings of the Quadra Island Studio Tour for 2014, and it is going to be displayed in Campbell River prior to the tour.

Island artist Kevin MacKenzie has offered a significant piece of his metal art for a silent auction in support of the tour. Leaping Beauty depicts a cougar captured mid-leap and measures 28 x 48 inches. It will be on display in Impressions Gallery in Campbell River until May 23 and then in the Quadra Island Coastal Community Credit Union window from May 26 to June 6. It will then be in the Community Centre during the Tour (June 7 and 8).

If you want to bid on this piece of art, bid sheets will be available at Impressions while the artwork is on display there, at Hummingbird Office Supplies while it is at the Credit Union on Quadra, and at the Community Center during the Studio Tour opening weekend.
