“Cleaning the Catch” by Peggy Burkosky
We all have a sense of the unique history of a coastal lifestyle and heritage that is at our doorstep here in British Columbia. Sylvia Taylor‘s newly released and already at the “top-of-the-charts” best-seller “Beckoned by the Sea” is a unique anecdote of coastal living that benefits from hard – working individuals, and in this case namely women.
I thank Sylvia for her invitation to be one of 24 women featured in her book – women that have varied skills and passions and necessities to thrive and survive on the rugged Cascadia coastline.
It all calls for celebration as we head over to the west coast of Vancouver Island British Columbia to begin the 2017 Cultural Heritage Festival hosted by the Pacific Rim Arts Society. I’m especially looking forward to the exhibits and presentations and am thankful to be chosen to exhibit at the Sept 27 – 30 Art Show at Black Rock featuring West Coast Women artists. Who doesn’t love a day-trip with a night or two in Ucluelet and Tofino? What a perfect weekend and week to take it all in with this festival!
