If you have a ticket or are thinking about getting a ticket, this is for you. The Old House Hotel & Spa and Locals Restaurant have teamed up to help us preview a selection of the artwork featured at the Paintings, By The Numbers event. We will also be distributing booklets and ranking sheets for ART DRAW ticket holders so they can agonize over ranking their favourite paintings.
The viewing party has been scheduled for the evening of Thursday, April 28th. This unique event will be hosted at Locals Restaurant from 4 to 6 pm and then at The Old House from 6 to 8 pm. Attendees can attend at either timeslot or stay for the whole affair. Attendees are welcome to order drinks and appies from Locals during the event. If you want to have dinner at Locals, please make a reservation and mention that you are involved with this event. Project Watershed staff will be in attendance to discuss the event, facilitate ticket sales and distribute catalogues. A selection of Ken Kirkby’s and Nana Cook’s paintings will be displayed at both locations.
The paintings at Locals will remain on display until 8pm that evening. The paintings at The Old House Hotel & Spa will be on display from 12 pm to 2 pm Thursday to Saturday, April 28, 29 and 30.
This will be the only chance to see the artwork in person before the Paintings, By The Numbers event on May 14th at 40 KNOTS Vineyard.
All proceeds from the Paintings, By The Numbers event will go towards the Kus-kus-sum project.
Wow 40 plus amazing, citizen scientists supported the forage fish project this season. They covered almost 30 beaches between Hornby Island, the Comox Valley, Campbell River, and Cortes Island.

We got a first look at how a restored Kus-kus-sum will operate during storms and king tides this winter. It was exciting to see the high tides move over the steel wall and inundate the site.
Approximately 4,000 native plants were planted at the Kus-kus-sum site over six days this October! THANK YOU to the 160 volunteers who contributed to planting, mulching and watering during this time – we would not have been able to accomplish this without you.
