Chris Doman's artwork is now on Display at the Rollin Art Centre for a joint exhibit with Pamela Holl Hunt. Both attended the same art college in England in the 1960s.

Arts Around: colourful new exhibit at Rollin

A joint Rollin art exhibit, family fiddle concert and more on the Alberni Valley Art scene.

The current exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre is a joint exhibit, titled

“Art College Brats – When two neighbours discover they went to the same art college 50 years previously.”

This creative and colourful exhibit will showcase the works of Chris Doman and Pam Holl Hunt. This exhibit will run from Nov. 3 – Nov. 29.

Join us in the gallery on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 1-3 p.m. to meet Doman and Hunt, share some treats and talk about colour and what inspires them to create.

Fiddle concert

Bring in the holiday season with family based group, Everything Fitz – The Fitzgeralds on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. at the ADSS auditorium.

Growing up in Canada’s Ottawa Valley, where fiddle and dance were ingrained in the culture, the Fitzgerald siblings learned at a young age how to engage their audience in a way that leaves them enamoured and wanting more.

The three siblings are accompanied by parents Pam and Paddy on keyboard and bass guitar. Former guitarist for Natalie McMaster, Nate Douglas, rounds out the program with vocals and acoustic guitar.

As youngsters, the Fitzgeralds were immersed in the rich tradition of Canadian old time fiddling and step dancing that evolved with the arrival of Irish, Scottish and French immigrants.

The siblings continue to push boundaries by fusing traditional and modern styles of fiddle and dance to create their own unique sound and style.

Tickets are only $20 and are now available only at the Rollin Art Centre.

This is a major fundraiser for the Rollin Art Centre, so please come out a support.

Timbre! Choir

Timbre! Choir is thrilled to present their first concert under the direction of  the new musical director Rosemary Lindsay and accompanied by Danielle Marcinek.

The concert, entitled The Gift, is on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 2:30 p.m. at the ADSS Theatre.

Tickets on sale at Rollin Art Centre, Echo Centre, (cash only), Finishing Touches, Salmonberry’s and from choir members.

Tickets are $20 for adults and seniors and $5 for students and children.

Christmas bazaar

Preparations are well underway for the annual Alberni Valley United Church Christmas Bazaar, 3747 Church St., to be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

It will feature homemade items, baking and crafts as well as attic treasures, Christmas room, mystery parcels, plants, books and raffles.
