Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

The HMCS ALBERNI MUSEUM AND MEMORIAL in the Comox Mall,  is proudly hosting this prestigious event!


The exhibit  "One-Way Passage" by renowed artist Bev Tosh is definitely a MUST SEE! It includes 30 full-length individual painted portraits based on original photographs of each young woman on her wedding day and their stoires.


Sensitively rendered in oil on planks of wood, the paintings convey a nostalgic sense of time’s passage. Each are hand painted on a 4 foot by 1 foot plank of wood. The natural occurring knots and grains of the wooden boards emphasize each subject’s character and dress.


Positioned shoulder to shoulder, they lean together to suggest the war bride’s mutual support. Collectively they pay tribute to the tens of thousands of war brides for whom a leap of faith meant not just a new husband, but a new country. Memorabilia from regional war brides lends a West Coast focus to a wide cross-section of Canadian portraits and stories.


Admission:  Adults - $8;  Seniors - $7;  Youth/TAPS Members - $5;  Children - If under 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult are FREE
