Come and join us for this informal Meet The Artists evening as we kick off celebrations for Canada's 150 Anniversary. Mingle and enjoy chatting with the artists while viewing the outstanding work on display at the Coast Collective Arts Centre. View the entire series of vintage styled travel posters in the 'Big Canadian Stuff - Eh!’ exhibit. Extend your viewing pleasure with 'Oh Canada!’, a second Canadian themed exhibition by society members.
Unframed 12” x 18” vintage styled travel posters will be available for purchase at the Coast Collective Arts Centre until January 29. Prices are: one for $15.00, four for $50.00, and seventeen (a full set) for $190.00.
You might also find something for your wall from the Oh Canada! exhibit or look for postcards, cards, prints, and tote bags from our table.
Unable to come on January 6th? While we will be sorry you missed this special evening, you will be able to visit both exhibits at Coast Collective from January 6 to January 29th. There will also be more opportunities at different venues later on this year.

The Island Illustrators Society Celebrates 150 Years of Canada’s Confederation
On July 1st, 2017 Canadians will celebrate 150 years of the Canadian Confederation. The Island Illustrators Society will celebrate with two exhibitions of illustrations: “Big Canadian Stuff-Eh!” and “Oh Canada!”.
Big Canadian Stuff-Eh!
Society members have created vintage style Travel Posters. These remarkable posters will take you on a journey across Canada. You will visit the 10 provinces and 3 territories and witness the giant natural and manmade icons that Canada is known for.
More works by society members depicting a Canadian theme will be combined with the Travel Posters in the Big Canadian Stuff-Eh! exhibit.
