Anthony’s seascapes come to life at the Rollin

Elissa Anthony's exhibit runs to Sept. 14 at the Rollin Art Centre.

Local land and seascapes come to life on the walls at the Rollin Art Centre with Elissa Anthony’s present exhibit, which runs until Sept. 14.

Anthony’s showcase of local land and seascapes will inspire the senses with her unique styles in both oil and acrylics. She  swings from realism thru expressionism, abstract, mixed media and back.

Photography up next at Rollin

The Rollin Art Centre’s next exhibit begins Sept. 17 and will run until Nov. 9. The Community Arts Council is excited to introduce Carlos Reyes-Manzo and his collection of photographs titled: Rights and Wrongs—The Resilience of the World’s Indigenous People”.

The exhibit will be on loan from North Island College in Campbell River.
