The Friends of the Gallery (FOG) is our annual celebration of the creativity of our membership. This exhibition launches the new year, and features the work of members of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council. The exhibition is a long-standing community event that has spanned more than 20 years. Originally, the aim was to create a way of involving emerging artists in a gallery show and to acknowledge the role of the arts in the community. Individual artists are invited to submit one piece of art they have completed in the previous year to be shown in this group exhibition.

Today, the exhibition is a perennial favourite with artists at all levels of practice and expresses the robust nature of the Sunshine Coast’s arts community. It is diverse, eclectic and fascinating – giving artists and the public a chance to experience Coastal art at its best. This year, the exhibition includes work across a rich range of materials and forms, we see creative expressions through a pandemic.

We invite you to spend time with the works, and if you can, purchase one and support a local artist.

The SCAC would like to thank our generous sponsors who make our ongoing work possible: the SCAC Membership, the District of Sechelt, the BC Arts Council, the SC Community Forest Fund, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation and the Sunshine Coast Credit Union.
