Heritage Houses Talk, featuring works by Albertine Meyer, Susan Gibbs, Mary Scales, Maureen King and Evelyne Turner of the Studio 5 Group, is the second show to be held at the new Arts Centre and Gallery at 9908 Main St.

It opens with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21.

Studio 5 is one of the Summerland Community Art Council’s member groups and their main objective is to meet with people that have a common interest in exploration and experimental drawing as an art form.

They will resume their fall sessions on Monday, Oct. 7 at 9 a.m. at the  Summerland Arts Centre and Gallery.

Anyone interested in drawing is welcome.

Anyone interested in learning more about the geology of our area is encouraged to join knowledgeable and entertaining geologist Kathleen Jagger in a discovery of the varied and fascinating geological formations and rock types that are found in the Summerland area.

This geology bus tour, organized by the Summerland Museum,  includes a stop at the top of Giant’s Head Mountain for a breathtaking panoramic view and geological explanation of the valley below.

Advance registration and payment is required so drop by the Summerland Museum at 9521 Wharton St. or call 250-494-9395 or email for more information.

Next Wednesday, Aug. 27 is the final concert in the Wednesdays on the Water free concert series that has been held at Spirit Square, Peach Orchard Beach during August.

The evening concert will feature The Dreamland Band. So come and swing with this 17-piece big band who play tunes from the 1930s to the present.

Bring your lawn chairs or even a picnic and enjoy the music.

If you come early you can take advantage of the water park, beach and the volleyball court.

This concert series was the initiative of our Summer Art Program coordinator Carmen McDowell and a big thanks to her and the various sponsors who made these music nights at the waterfront a possibility.

The Arts Palette column 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.
