Some of the West Shore’s youngest artists are celebrating Earth Day with an exhibit of environmental-themed works at the Coast Collective Art Centre in Colwood.

An Earth Day Children’s Art Show, a special children’s gallery exhibition, is promoting the works made by artists aged 12 and under on the main gallery space at the not-for-profit community art centre.

“The children are always thrilled to see their artwork on display in a real gallery, and the Earth Day connection helps them to think creatively about their environment and their community,” said general manager Jessica Stein in a release.

The artwork selected for this year’s exhibition poster is The Flying Narwhal, an acrylic on wood piece by Ruby Marley, a five-year-old artist who’s participated for a few years in a row.
