An explosion of colour is coming to the Alberni Valley.
The Community Arts Council is very excited to bring something new to the Valley. Aché Brasil Dance troop is an explosion of colour, energy and music that represents the culture, traditions, beliefs, music and movement of the people of Brazil.
This family-friendly fundraiser is equal parts music, dance and spectacle. Funds raised will be used for the maintenance of the Rollin Art Centre’s gardens and grounds.
Tickets are now on sale only at the Rollin Art Centre ($25 for adults, $20 for students/seniors and $10 for children 12 and under). The show will take place Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. at the ADSS Auditorium.
ROLLIN ART CENTRE IS CLOSED
Just a reminder to all that the Rollin Art Centre is currently closed for our annual summer maintenance. We re-open Tuesday, Sept. 10, when you can join us in the gallery for our next art exhibit featuring Marie Heath and fabric art/mixed media.
The Rollin Art Centre’s next art exhibit features Marie Heath with her collection of fabric art and mixed media titled, “Paper Chase.”
“I see great possibilities in the overlooked objects that surround us in our daily lives and hope to inspire others to see the potential as well,” says Heath.
This exhibit begins Sept. 10 and runs until Oct. 2. Join us in the gallery on Saturday, Sept. 14 for an opportunity to meet the artist and share some refreshments.
