The Pacific Brant Carving and Art Show was held last weekend at Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney.

This annual show is organized by the Vancouver Island Wood Carving Club.  For many years it was located in Parksville in conjunction with the Brant Goose Festival, but for the past two years has been a very successful event at the Mary Winspear Centre, showcasing carvings from all over the Pacific Northwest.

Carvers from the local North Saanich Wood Carvers Club entered their work and were successful in winning many first, second and third-place ribbons, as well as coveted best in show in a number of categories.
