The fifth annual First Nations, Inuit and Métis Art Show and Sale kicks off next week in its new home at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The show, which over the last four years outgrew the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula’s Tulista Arts Centre, will run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 12 and will showcase even more pieces now that it’s moved to the Winspear.

“We’re really looking forward to this show and being able to display the amazing pieces,” said Brad Edgett, the executive director of the Mary Winspear Centre.

The artists in the show include Charles Elliott, Lindsay Delaronde, Lionel Samuels, Selena Aurica Bondoc and Chas Elliott (son of Charles) and will feature mediums of carving, painting, beadwork and more.

The show and sale is open daily from Monday through Saturday. For more information, visit www.marywinspear.ca or call 250-656-0275.
