Dear Friends,

We are so pleased to welcome VIHA to ArtSpring where they are running their COVID vaccine clinic for Salt Spring Island, helping us all achieve herd immunity. What an amazing team VIHA is!

The Salt Spring COVID-19 immunization clinic is being held in the ArtSpring galleries, Wednesday April 7 to Wednesday September 15. Entrance is via the rear parking lot only.

To book your vaccination appointment you can use BC’s new online registration system, or you can ring the provincial call centre 1-833-838-2323. Visit for more information.
Please do not contact ArtSpring as we are unable to help with vaccine clinic inquiries.

The BC Provincial Health Order of November 19 restricting events continues until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back when we are able.

With thanks,
Cicela Månsson
Executive & Artistic Director, ArtSpring

Chilly Gonzales

Stop calling it guilty pleasure: Chilly Gonzales wants us to embrace our tastes without the fear of judgement. If enjoying Enya is wrong, then Grammy-winning Canadian musician Chilly Gonzales doesn’t want to be right. And while his latest book on the Irish artist might mislead people to think he’s a fan, Gonzales says that’s not why he wrote the book. More>
