 Artist in Action  - Marla Thirsk
I've been living on the coast for close to 40 years now and been very involved in the arts out here. Past President of the Art Society (6 times), organizer of various art events and the first artist for the Whale Festival Poster series, as well as Edge-to-Edge marathon, Food and Wine, and Ukee Days Festivals.

“ArtSplash!” is the largest non-juried Annual Art Show on the west coast and once again this year it will be in conjunction with the Whale Festival.  Up to 60 artists will have their work for sale and on selected days Artists in Action will be demonstrating their skills.  This is a fantastic opportunity to see the creative work of regional established and emerging artists.   Admission:  Free – donations appreciated! Daily until the 25th 10am–6pm.
