The Sunshine Coast’s current sole performance venue, The Clubhouse Restaurant at the Pender Harbour Golf Course, recently announced a month-long lineup of Friday and Sunday performances, but the run has been postponed in accordance with the “circuit-breaker” restrictions imposed by the B.C. government due to the renewed spread of COVID-19. Martini Madness, Burying Ground, Sofa Kings and Joe Stanton were just a few of the local performers scheduled. Stay tuned.
Attendees still have to mask up, but the Coast’s art galleries are operating as usual. Opening at The Kube in Gibsons this week and running until April 30 is a solo exhibition, Layered Stillness, by Vancouver artists Renske Werner. “These paintings tell the story of the ways I enjoy stillness,” said Werner. “… about settling into that moment when you don’t have to be anywhere or anyone.” 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
In lieu of the traditional opening reception, Fibreworks Studio & Gallery in Madeira Park is hosting a virtual artist talk with the creators involved in the gallery’s opening exhibition for the 2021 season, titled Three, Two, One – Create. Coreen Zerr, Krista, and Don Zeghers will talk about their show, their process and more on Saturday, April 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. Go to the gallery’s Facebook page to link to the Facebook Live event.
