Culture Days events scheduled

Across the country, more than 8,000 events are taking place in more than 800 communities as part of Culture Days.

Across the country, more than 8,000 events are taking place in more than 800 communities this weekend, Sept. 26, 27 and 28, as part of Culture Days.

You are invited to create, participate and celebrate culture in its various forms.

Here in Summerland a number of events have been organized including 10-10-10 at the Summerland Library.

Although it is widely recognized that Summerland has a strong visual arts community, as witnessed by the number of artist studios in town, it is probably less well known that our community is also home to a considerable number of published writers.

At 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Library we will have the opportunity to hear 10 local authors reading from 10 good books for 10 minutes.

These books will range from young adult fiction to spy thrillers, train stories of Alberta and B.C.,to African adventures and a memoir of a child Holocaust survivor.

This Culture Days weekend will also see a dozen professional and semi-professional local artists showcasing their works at the ballroom at the  Summerland Waterfront Resort.

De Vine Arts is a free event and will feature complimentary wine tasting  from wineries of Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive,and will take place between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 27 and Sunday, Sept. 28.

On display will be stained glass, wood turning, oils, pastels, acrylics, watercolours, pottery, jewellery creations and photography.

Here is our opportunity to participate, appreciate and celebrate various aspects of culture in our community. Enjoy!

The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, P.O. Box 1217, 9908 Main St., Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0.
