Arts Around Alberni: out with the old in with the new

A dash of this, that, and the other from here, there and everywhere in Alberni's arts and entertainment scene.

“Cedar and Sawdust” will be the next art exhibit hanging at the Rollin Art Centre gallery, starting Friday, April 12.

This solo art exhibit by Charlotte Bell opens the doors of memory and imagination to explore years of working in, and observing, the coastal forest of British Columbia. It showcases a collection of Bell’s soft acrylic paintings.

Last chance to see Gerebs

This is the final week to visit the Rollin Art Centre’s current art exhibit, which showcases local husband and wife photographers Ati and Orsi Gereb. This exhibit runs only until April 10.

The Rollin Art Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Argyle Street. Admission is by donation and we are wheelchair accessible.

Rollin needs your books

The Community Arts Council still needs your books. Mark your calendars as May 11 is the date for our annual book sale.

This is the Community Arts Council’s biggest fundraiser for the year to help keep the Arts alive, so please drop off all your gently used books, puzzles and CDs to the Rollin Art Centre in the box located under the stairs.

Unfortunately we will not be able to take text books, encyclopedias or library books.

Big band for music lovers

The Harbour City Big Band is having its annual dance on Saturday April 6 at the Bavarian Centre, and tickets are still available for $15 at Rollin Art Centre, from any band members or at Pete’s Mountain Meats. Cash only.
