Marla Thirsk · Recognized by Sooke Fine Arts Society

   Sooke Fine Arts Society has an annual art show consisting of works by hundreds of area artists and is attended by more than 7000 visitors each year. This year the event runs from July 24th ’til August 2nd. Regionally, it’s a fairly high profile event.

It’s jurored by Jeffrey Spalding the President of Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, John Luna a Painter, Writer, Curator, and instructor at Vancouver Island School of Art and UVic as well as Diane Farris a noted curator and owner of Diane Farris Gallery in Vancouver.

I’m pleased to report that Ucluelet’s own Marla Thirsk has been selected for the Juror’s Choice Award (sponsored by the Sooke Community Arts Council) for her recent portrait ‘Disconnect‘.

Marla’s works can be viewed here at Mark Penney Gallery in Ucluelet and also at Cedar Corner Gallery in Tofino.
