New shows set to open at art gallery

The Summerland Community Arts Council is looking forward to another great year with six shows scheduled for the Main Gallery.

One year has ended and another is set to begin.

The Summerland Community Arts Council is looking forward to another great year with six shows scheduled for the Main Gallery, and additional shows scheduled for the Adams Room. Not to mention workshops for kids and adults, another Street Banner Program, Summer Art Program and so much more.

Here are a few dates to remember and mark on your new 2014 calendars.

Memberships are due at the beginning of January. Please renew your membership promptly.

Like all organizations your membership is important and valued.

You can find membership forms on our newsletter or you can download them from our website (see the members page at summerlandarts.com) or drop by the office when it reopens on Jan. 6.

The Summerland Community Arts Council will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 1 p.m. and if you would like to get more involved in promoting and enhancing the arts in your community please consider joining our board or becoming a volunteer.

Our art gallery remains open because of a dedicated group of volunteer gallery sitters.

Volunteers are vital for our other programs as well.

Our first class of the year is a weekend workshop in Intermediate Watercolours on Feb. 8 and 9.

Our first opening for a new show is Thursday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m., with colourful abstract paintings by Fiona Neal followed by the artist’s talk on Friday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m.

The office is back open on Monday, Jan. 6 at 10 a.m. and the newsletter will be sent out shortly afterwards.

Thank you for your support in 2013 and we hope to see you at the Arts Centre in the new year.
