WildWings Nature & Arts Festival 2019

About WildWings

This year’s 10th annual festival kicks off on Wednesday, October 9th at Just Jakes Restaurant in
Downtown Duncan with the launch party and WildWings Art Exhibition opening reception. The
Festival continues to the end of the month with fun-filled educational events where you can
experience and learn more about the nature of Somenos Marsh and other Cowichan Valley
ecological gems. One of the key events of the WildWings Nature & Arts Festival is the annual
WildWings Art Exhibition and Sale. The art exhibition, hosted by Just Jakes restaurant, home of
the WildWings loft in beautiful downtown Duncan, features 35 - 40 community artists whose
works reflect a love of nature. The exhibition’s opening reception launches the festival proper,
while the art coming down from the walls signals the end of the festival.

Call for Exhibition Artists

South Vancouver Island artists who are interested in participating, and who have not exhibited
at WildWings before, are asked to submit a small portfolio of their work. Previous WildWings
artists can confirm their space by email. There is a $25 entry fee and a 30% commission on art
sales that goes towards the festival costs. This submission opportunity is limited by space and
numbers, so it is a good idea to book early. For submission guidelines, or to confirm your
submission, please contact the WildWings coordinator Paul Fletcher [email protected]
