All About the brush up event



The next Brush Up show is August 14, 2022



Take part in one of Oak Bay's arts events!

Enter this outdoor art-in-the-park day from Armstrong Ave, Hampshire Ave, stroll from Oak Bay High School or walk in from Oak Bay Recreation Centre on Bee St.


As a patron of the arts, this free event is your opportunity to meet practicing artists who will demonstrate, sell their work and talk to visitors. Come for a quick visit or stay all day, hear music in the park, purchase food or drink from the fundraising sale or just feast your eyes on art.


Members of the Oak Bay Community Artists Society are invited to take part. If you join the event, your role in the Brush Up is to help put on the event, set up early (see sample site map below), bring your materials to demonstrate, offer your work for sale and interact with the public. If you are interested, please send your contact information and description of your medium to our treasurer.


If you are a new Oak Bay artist who wishes to join the society please see details on membership. Membership and show fee is $50.


For artists friends outside of Oak Bay and non-artist approved organizations, your fee for the event is $75.
