The EDGE Art Exhibit is a showcase of carved and weaved works from all corners of our art community. Discover the relationship between the carver, the weaver and the coast as you explore the vast variety of art styles from traditional to contemporary, innovative to whimsical, art of all levels. This year’s exhibit will feature Through Our Eyes, a youth photo and writing project, and artist-led tours.
The Opening Night will feature special performances by the local Amos Family Women’s Dance Group and youth singers from the Wickaninnish Community School led by Elder Grace George.
The Carving on the Edge Festival sends out periodic updates on the festival and out-of-festival events. If you’d like to be kept up-to-date on the coastal carving scene, please sign-up using the form below.
