Join me, Artist and iPhone Photographer Brenda Johima in the first ever Elevate The Arts Mobile Phone Photo-Art Show! This is an all-ages, all-inclusive and FUN opportunity to showcase your your camera phone talents an artistic, creative and photographic tool to create works of photographic art.

Please support the Arts and visit the Elevate the Arts website for more information about all of the other fascinating things taking place at this super cool and exciting community event, which will take place in Downtown Courtenay, in the Comox Valley.


I volunteered my time to take part in this “full day culture crawl extravaganza” and to organize and coordinate  this one piece.

There were not enough submissions 🙁 … but it’s OK! We have to start somewhere. So, we had a great time anyway, after we added a few painters, visual artists to the mix. It ended up being “Elevate the Point!” with most of the participants at my venue, living in my neighbourhood, Ships Point, except for one person.

Thanks to the following artists for participating:

  • Don Cunningham
  • Brenda Johima
  • Barbara Legg
  • Laura Sponselee
  • Madeleine Wood

Totally enjoyed myself at 444-5th Street. One of the most rewarding parts of the day was having the young families come in, and to see their appreciation for abstract art and paintings, and to have the sweetest most beautiful little ones come in to see the art with their parents. I think that the Comox Valley must have some of the most peaceful and content, beautiful young children. Thank you to all who came by to visit!

P.S. A HUGE Thank you to Kevin Reid of Coast Realty Group in Courtenay for loaning me space for our make-shift 24-hour gallery in the old Leung’s building at 444-5th Street, Downtown Courtenay.
