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.

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.
