A flock of oystercatchers awaits in a new art show opening Saturday, April 13 from 3 to 6 p.m.

Artist Anne Hansen’s oystercatcher art, featuring exciting new species, is at the offices of WellSpring Counselling and Consulting, 919 Fort St. (behind the Blue Fox Cafe).

Hansen and other artists’ work will also be on show during the Oak Bay Studio Tour, Saturday and Sunday April 20 and 21, from noon to 4:30 p.m. each day.

To open the 14th year of this popular semi-annual juried show of fine arts in Oak Bay, 22 of Oak Bay’s established and emerging artists will use their homes and studios as backdrops to display the products of their creativity in a variety of original watercolour, acrylic, oil, fibre, photographic, woodcut, glass and pottery creations.

The two-day special event, coordinated by Recreation Oak Bay, is free to the public. For more information go to oakbay.ca.
