The Summerland Community Arts Council will mark B.C. Arts and Culture Week later this month with a number of special events and activities.

B.C. Arts and Culture Week is April 21 to 27. The theme this year is Celebrating the Arts in Learning and Life.

Starting off on Saturday April 20 with an Imagination Station for children of all ages to create with recycled “stuff,” the Arts Centre will be a hive of activity, ranging from an outdoor  raku firing with Potters’ Guild to a radio play presented by the Summerland Singers and Players to the presentation of the Arts Appreciation Award at the Friday evening gala.

The Summerland Community Arts Council has put together a passport outlining art and cultural opportunities during the week. They can be picked up at the Arts Centre Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visit a local artist’s studio, join the discussion at the Summerland Scribes meeting, watch potters at work, tour our town looking at the outdoor murals, sculpture and heritage homes, visit the library and the museum. Come to the Art Centre and view the Postcard Challenge entries and vote for your favourite.

These and many more are listed in the passport and the public is encouraged to visit as many as they can during the week and then enter their passport into the draw for a basket of items created by our local artists.
