Who are we?
By 2003 our artists paintings adorned the walls of the Municipal Hall and in 2004 the group was registered as the Oak Bay
Community Artists Society. The centennial year, 2005, saw the initiation of the now well-known Bowker Creek Brush-Up,
an annual outdoor event held on the second Sunday of August.
The artists work with a variety of materials: our painters use oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolours; some artists pursue
photography, quilting, weaving, dying and other fibre arts; others create in clay or pottery and paint ceramics.
We currently have around 40 members - read on to see the great work of our members. You will see the a wide range of
talent and a lot of enthusiasm and dedication.
Please think about joining this eclectic group!
The Oak Bay Community Artists Society is a group of
amateur, professional and emerging artists, living and
working in Oak Bay in the beautiful city of Victoria, BC.
We started in 2002 as an informal group of local artists;
many had been participating in the Recreation Oak Bay
Artist Studio Tours. The society get this increasingly
popular activity started.
