42nd Annual Members’ Show
Presented by the Campbell River Art Gallery and the Campbell River Arts Council
January 13th to March 9th, 2024
A long standing tradition of collaboration has come again this year to Campbell River. This will be the 42nd Annual Members’ Show, showcasing a diversity of artists in our community.
“The Member’s Show continues to be the primary focal point for showcasing the amazing creativity and diversity of talent that lives in our community.” says Ken Blackburn, Executive Director of the Campbell River Arts Council. “It is also a snapshot of the strength and health of our cultural sector. The Member’s Show is a true asset for Campbell River and after 41 years we are still going strong!”
Enjoy the work of artists from the North Island and the Campbell River area as they display, never-before-shown work created in the last three years. A time honoured tradition, the exhibition dates back even before the CRAG became the city’s public gallery.
Sara Lopez Assu, Executive Director of the Campbell River Art Gallery comments, “It’s always an honour to showcase local talent, and the Annual Members’ Show never disappoints. We’re so grateful for all the community support and look forward to hosting this beloved event for its 42nd year!”
The exhibition will also feature programming that extends artistic practice in our community from Life Drawing classes to an in person Critique as well as a Members’ Exclusive Tea & Talk that delves further into the curation and works that are hung in the show.
The 42nd Annual Members’ Show, presented by the Campbell River Art Gallery and the Campbell River Arts Council will be held at the gallery between January 13th until March 8th.
Our satellite gallery is an exhibition space located in the lobby of the Campbell River Art Gallery and Visitors Centre. Four large showcases are devoted to contemporary artwork.

From the land, to the sea, and to the sky, Water’s Generosity explores our reverence for the gifts of water through sculpture, painting, video, and sound. Artists Angelika Forray and Marlee Munro address the relationship between human and water and the role that it plays in our lives. How we depend on water and its abundance for our survival. Its innate ability to transmute anything it touches. Water is a fundamental element of all life. The collective feeling of relief during the first rainfall after a long drought. The blessings of the harvest that water gives us for cultivating its essence. As it ebbs and flows, so do we.
