This year’s “Artist of the Somenos” is Stuart Pagaduan, a local Cowichan Valley artist whose art will be on display at the exhibition along with other local artists. Stuart’s art work joins the six previous ‘Artists of the Somenos’ whose work is on permanent display upstairs in Just Jakes WildWings Loft. The Art Exhibition opening reception will be a first option to buy opportunity for the original art pieces that will be on display all month long at Just Jakes Restaurant.
