The Community Arts Council along with Rotary Club of Port Alberni – Arrowsmith present our current art exhibit, Alberni Valley Landmarks.
This exhibit highlights some of the amazing landmarks in our Valley, all from the perspective of the artists who live here. Residents and gallery visitors alike will have the chance to vote on which piece of art best represents the Valley’s landmarks. Arrowsmith Rotary is sponsoring a “People’s Choice” award of $500 and an opportunity to have the chosen image featured on a puzzle. So, pick your favourite piece and have the artists transport you visually to your favourite Alberni Landmark.
Arrowsmith Rotary will also be sponsoring our artists meet and greet on Saturday, Feb. 4, from 1-3 p.m. at the Grove Art Gallery. Please join us for refreshments and a chance to meet the artists as well as members of the Rotary club and the Community Arts Council of the Alberni Valley.
“Alberni Valley Landmarks” runs until March 24.
