Almost summer, or so says the calendar.  The weather suggests that summer has already arrived - and we're excited to announce a Red Tree Collective summer show taking place on the long Canada Day weekend at Sea Star Vineyards.  

We hope that our loyal gallery followers along with friends and family will find their way to Sea Star for wonderful artwork, exquisite wines, gourmet hors d'ouvres, and melodious bass and guitar music by Cole Dine.

Although the Red Tree Gallery no longer exists at Hope Bay, the Red Tree Artists’ Collective is alive and well!  As former gallery members, we will be showing twice this summer on Pender Island: at Sea Star Vineyards and at Art in the Orchard.  The winery show will take place on the long July weekend with an opening Friday June 29th.  The show will continue June 30th and July 1st.  There will be lots of new work and we look forward to welcoming our loyal customers and others to the winery event.  And later in July on Saturday the 28th, we will take part in Art in the Orchard at Corbett House.  In addition, we are excited to announce a two-month show in October and November at Goward House in Victoria.  Details for each show will be broadcast closer to the opening date.

Red Tree Gallery has chosen "Remembering" as the title of our November show.  With the closure of our gallery in sight, we want to remember those who have been members over the years since the gallery's inception 12 years ago.  We look forward to welcoming you Wednesdays to Sundays, 11 - 4 (Remembrance Day we will open at noon).

Below you will see photos of the Red Tree Gallery as it looks this month.  We hope you will come out of the cold into the warmth of Red Tree; sadly we're counting down.  Those of you who read the Pender Post will have seen this already.  It is reprinted here for those of you who don't know the latest gallery news.

Pender Islands Artisan Cooperative has operated the Red Tree Gallery at Hope Bay for over twelve years.  Artists have kept the gallery open through busy summers and quiet winters, and visitors and Penderites alike have expressed tremendous appreciation for the visual feast and tranquil atmosphere that greets them as they walk through the doors.  Thirty Pender artists have shown their work at the Red Tree over the years, and the work of a dozen guest artists has been featured over the last three summers.   
Sadly we have taken the decision to close the gallery at the end of this year.  However the Red Tree Cooperative will continue with a plan to mount one or more shows each year.  Look for updates in the coming months.   We will sign off with "Remembering" in November and a thank you to the community in December and hope that you will continue to visit the gallery between now and then.  Thank you for your generous support over the years and for pointing your guests in our direction.
