Gibsons Public Market

Tidepools Art Show & Auction

Tidepools Art Show & Auction

Every year, the atrium at Gibsons Public Market fills up with beautiful artwork created by members of our community to raise funds to support the Nicholas Sonntag Tidepools Aquarium (previously Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre).

In 2024, the 6th Annual Tidepools Art Show and Auction will feature close to 100 orca designs. There are so many creative pieces for you to see, so swim on down to the Market and bid on your favourites. Online Auction & Show opens June 26th. Visit the Tidepools website for more infomation.

Special thanks to all of the artists that have participated, and our amazing volunteers and staff that helped to ORCA-nize this incredible show!
