While driving to Hornby Island yesterday I passed the Fanny Bay exit sign and thought of the artist George Sawchuk (1927-2012).
Last year the Comox Valley Art Gallery mounted an exhibition of Sawchuk's portables, as well as a selection of his drawings.
Part of the exhibition included an event at Sawchuk's home. Although his Forest Gallery is a highlight, I am also fond of his studio, which his wife, Pat Helps, has faithfully preserved.
