Time: 10am-7pm

Location: 22 Fern Rd W, Qualicum Beach

Details: The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre (TOSH) presents the 2022 TOSH Student Exhibition exploring the theme of nature. Students were invited to meditate on the theme of "Nature" and submitted work based on that rumination. The exhibition brings together a diverse group of school-aged artists who utilize different mediums, styles and techniques to present a unique perspective on an important theme. The exhibition includes various interactive art installations for community members of all ages to engage with.

Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2022

Time: 10am-7pm

Location: 22 Fern Rd W, Qualicum Beach

Details: The butterfly is a symbol of transformation. From the cocoon, the butterfly emerges in colourful splendour. Just like a butterfly, we too are emerging from this unsettling time transformed. Over the course of 2020, schools, groups and community members were invited to decorate paper butterflies that have been hung in the TOSH galleries.
