Featured Products

Francine Peters

Artist Francine Peters depicted colourful, fun portrayals of west coast life with her vivid acrylic pieces. The museum commissioned an image of the Bastion and harbour that is the perfect addition to a gift or souvenir from Nanaimo. This striking image adorns playing cards, tote bags, notebooks, aprons, ornaments, magnets, mugs, and many other popular items. The museum is grateful to Peters for the donation of this wonderful work.
