Old book donations

May 13 and 14 is the Community Arts Council giant book sale, and book donations are down. If you have any books, in great condition, that you are able to donate, please drop them off at the Rollin Art Centre today.  Start your spring cleaning early and de-clutter your house by donating all your gently used books.

Days with a twist

Tables are still available for Days with the Arts, although with a twist this year. Days with the Arts is back and this year we are starting a co-operative arts festival and we are inviting all artists who are interested in taking part.  If you are interested in being involved at this year’s days with the Arts during the Solstice Arts Festival, please contact the Rollin Art Centre. We are looking for all artists/artisans who may be interested in having a table/display/demo’s set up on the grounds during the three-day event, June 17 to 19. Space is limited, so call or drop by the Rollin Art Centre for more information.

Calling all artists

If you are an artist that is looking to showcase your work, here is the perfect opportunity. The Rollin Arts Centre has a call to artists, which offers you a chance to have your very own art exhibit in the beautiful gallery for 2017. If you don’t have enough pieces, don’t worry, we can always match you up with another artist to have a joint show.  Applications are available online or at the Rollin Art Centre. Deadline is April 30, 2016.

Gallery show

This year, Alberni Art Rave is presenting a two-week art show in the main gallery of the Rollin Art Centre as part of Solstice Arts Festival – Alberni Valley 2016. The grand opening of the festival and show is Friday, June 17 at 5 p.m. Submissions of recent work are  encouraged from artists in all fields and media. Due to the intimate location, we may have to restrict the size of wall-hung pieces to around 60 cm x 60 cm. There is abundant outside display space for sculpture or other works. Deadline for expression of interest is Sunday May 1, 2016. For more information: email albernisolstice2016@gmail.com or call Chris Doman at 250-736-101.
