We love how there is a constant Ebb and Flow through our store. We receive new pieces of art weekly, sometimes even daily and it leaves just as fast. Our store shore is fresh with every tide, exposing new gems for our customers to discover. On this page we will do our best to post some of the latest arrivals!
INSIGHTS OF THE SALISH SEA
By Sarah J. Clark - Conductor of Comings and Goings
Charles van Sandwyk is one of the pillars of the Salish Sea Market. He’s been with us since the beginning of the store, and everyday is part of the magic that is the Market.
His beautiful, whimsical and cherished work greets our visitors at the door and they are immediately drawn in to take a closer look.
In the life of an artist there is constant shift, an ever-changing landscape of challenges and opportunities. First there are the myriad of ideas that come up, then there’s what to do with them all. The life of an artist is a pretty busy place.
Right now, Comox Valley artist Marianne Enhörning is one of those very busy artists. Busy with ideas for new pieces and stretching her reach into the world beyond Vancouver Island.
It’s official, the Salish Sea Market has a taken up residence online!
We are so pleased to be able to share the beauty, wonder and talent of our artists and artisans, with the whole wide world.
After 8 years of building an amazing creative-filled community in our tiny village of Bowser, on the east coast of Vancouver Island, we are excited to reach out and build a community here on the web. We have so much to share and we hope you will want to be a part of it.
The Salish Sea is a combination of three bodies of water, stretching from Campbell River on Vancouver Island south to Washington State. In 2010, in a ceremony of reconciliation with the coastal First Nations, and Canadian and American governments, the Strait of Georgia, the Juan de Fuca Strait and Puget Sound were given the name Salish Sea. This is to honour and recognize that this area is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish nations.
