CELEBRATE OCEANS

 

 

East Pacific teal to Carribean blue, beautiful North American salt waters and shorelines inspire art and play! Celebrate World Oceans Day every day with TLC.

Oceans for frolicking kids, calm smooth waters, lazy west coast sea otters, fishing boats named for the sea, still blue nights at the beach.

 

 

 

 

Oceans for: family seaside get-togethers, pouty northern fishes, sleek dolphins, Vancouver Island rough waters and winter storms, and Bald Eagle lookouts.

This exhibition invites visitors to embark on a self-guided south-to-north coastal sea voyage: highlighting ships, salty glimpses into local histories, and hidden anchorages. 

MV Salt Mist (ex-Kagome), centerpiece of this exhibit, was among the swiftest of night vessels plying straits southbound with her cargos of contraband liquor. Explore BC’s coast from the southern Gulf Islands to Discovery Passage and North.

Marine artwork in this exhibit captures the imagined moods of coastal history, inspired by early mariners, shipbuilders and those who love the music of the waves.
