Arts Council seeks new board members

The Summerland Community Arts Council is looking for more members to join the board for the coming year.

The Summerland Community Arts Council is looking for more members to join the board for the coming year.

Sharry Schneider, secretary of the board, said at least two and possibly three of the present 10 board members are stepping down.

“We are having a critical time getting board members,” she said.

The low number this year is a contrast from a decade ago, when the Arts Council boasted an 18-member board.

At present, the Arts Council has 113 single members, 12 group members and 11 lifetime members, for a total of 136.

The Arts Council as active as around 40 members had their works included in the Season’s Sparkles show and sale.

Another 60 artists have had their work on exhibit in the gallery or the store from time to time.
