We wish you all a new year full of inspiration, and creativity! Starting the year with many challenges still on our plates, we look forward to celebrating the wins and renewing our hopes for a better future. The support from our local community and online patrons has been amazing and heartwarming and we are constantly delighted by the response to the gallery from our visitors.   

There will undoubtedly be a few changes for the coming year and one of them is that Thiago Ramirez has stepped down as co-owner at Catching Stars but the happy news is that he will remain as an associate and his dynamic photographic prints will continue to be available to add to your collection. We will miss his many contributions behind the scenes to the running of the gallery and wish him all the best in his exciting endeavours. We will eagerly follow his amazing projects and wild adventures! 

“After almost three years being part of this amazing team/family at Catching Stars, I’ve now decided that it’s time to get back out there again! It’s time for me to take all the incredible moments and experiences I’ve had with all these amazing artists who are part of this family and spread its good energy through my new creations! In my film projects, photography work, skydiving adventures or whatever I head to, having been here and being with all of you definitely made me more prepared for a future of great achievements! And hey, I’m still here as an associate, so don’t forget to come say hi!” says Ramirez.

Our gallery now has well over 50 different artists, who continue to amaze with the level of creativity and expertise in the many varieties of mediums available - from locally created jewellery, mixed media wall art, textiles, limited edition prints, fine oil paintings, stone and bronze sculptures, and so much more!

This past year, we welcomed several new artists to the Catching Stars family and will be introducing some new ones in the coming months.

Receiving funding for improvements to our online store has enabled us to grow beyond the shores of Bowen Island and we are very grateful to everyone who has used this service to send their love across the miles.

Every day you have an opportunity to meet one of our associate members who are local artists and as a cooperative, their contributions enable us to keep our doors open on a daily basis. This past year has been challenging on many levels for local businesses and we are so grateful to these committed artists who help with the many moving parts of running a small business!

Happy New Year to all of you and wishing you a creative and inspiring 2022!
