Artist Growcott captures dreams on canvas

A new exhibit, the final Tea on the Terrace, summer camp and more on the arts scene in Alberni this week.

‘Aberaeron’ is one of artist Julian Growcott’s dream-like acrylic paintings in his exhibit ‘Post Invisible’ at the Rollin Art Centre.

‘Aberaeron’ is one of artist Julian Growcott’s dream-like acrylic paintings in his exhibit ‘Post Invisible’ at the Rollin Art Centre.

Our current art exhibit, featuring artist Julian Growcott, runs until Aug. 26.

Growcott, a transplanted Port Alberni resident now living in Nanaimo, is showcasing his original acrylic paintings and has titled his exhibit, “Post Invisible”.

Since childhood, Growcott has had incredibly lucid dreams—dreams that he says he remembers vividly and work in conjunction with childhood memories of England. These memories and dreams, together, have inspired the works he is displaying.

Each piece of artwork is an image now realized in acrylics on art board and canvas.

Join Growcott in the gallery, this Saturday, Aug. 6 from 1–3 p.m., in his “Post Invisible World” and let reality wait a while.

Kurucz at final Tea on Terrace

Join us in the garden on Thursday, Aug. 25 to help celebrate the end of the summer with the final Tea on the Terrace, when our musical guests will be Paul Kurucz and the Travelers.

Kurucz and his daughters will be sure to entertain you with their love of music and stage presence. Kurucz always likes to close out the summer with his long list of musical favourites, from folk to pop.

This amazing musical family is one you won’t want to miss. Tickets are still available, but don’t wait too long, because this tea is always a sellout.

Tickets are $20, and are available at the Rollin Art Centre on Eighth Avenue.

Camp’s a fairy tale

Our next children’s art camp, for ages 7-12, is Fairy Tales, running Aug. 9, 10 and 12. In this camp we will dive into the worlds of different fairy tales including Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Pied Piper and Pinocchio.

Call 250-724-3412 for more info and to register.
