Come to the Cortes Island Museum, 957 Beasley Road, Mansons Landing, on Saturday, June 24th, at 2 pm, to celebrate our brand new look and exciting new exhibition, Refuge Cove: Moving with the Tide.
First established in 1910, this hidden community, full of history and personality, lies just kilometers east of Squirrel Cove. Its life and times during the 1970s is depicted in seven iconic paintings by Judith M. Williams. Rare archival photographs, artifacts, stories and interviews will take you from its beginnings as an upcoast provisioning centre enclosed by float houses, to a supply stop for boaters and a haven on the land for Cortes Island's nearest neighbours.
Special thanks to Curatorial Interns—Terri Storey, Monica Nawrocki, Laura Balducci, Laurel Bohart, Gordon Gram, Mercedes Grant, Sue John, and assistant, Holger Schramm.
Dynamite Stories, by the exhibit curator, Judith M. Williams and Refuge Cove Coastal Kitchen, by Cathy Campbell, companion pieces to the exhibition, will be for sale in the Museum shop.
Everyone welcome to join us for refreshments.
