|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
Savary Island has been an important location for artists to paint for many years, but information about the island, its history and facilities, has been scattered in various collections and never compiled.
The Heritage Society has been working on a number of projects related to the
historical title searches on the island's early homes
compiling a history of the island's first homes
creating heritage signage
publishing Savary Island history
The Society, especially Director Conde Landale, has been very helpful to the Editor in his research on the island, freely loaning important and unique historical information and photographs.
Although the Editor first became interested in the island because of the extensive connections to the island of the Sherman family, especially R.S. Sherman and Maud Rees Sherman, many other important B.C. artists turned out to have visited and painted the island. Refer to the Savary Island article for further information.
