Calling all artists and local crafters! The Rollin Art Centre’s annual Christmas Market is just around the corner.
This invitation is open to all local artisans and crafters to be included in a month-long celebration of the holidays. If you are interested, stop by the Rollin Art Centre (3061 Eighth Ave) and pick up your form today. All you need is a current Community Arts Council membership to take part.
The deadline for submissions is the last week in November. Mistletoe Market is open the entire month of December and is a great way to showcase your one of a kind works. Call for more info: 250-724-3412.
The last art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre for the year is titled “Coastal Crush.”
This exciting and very different exhibit features local artist Michelle Frost. Michelle’s collection is influenced by the coastal shores and features fluid paintings, recycled glass and art panels. It is not only two-dimensional but three-dimensional. This exhibit is on now at the Rollin Art Centre until Nov. 26.
SATURDAYS ARE KRAFT DAYS
If you are between the ages of seven and 13 and you love glitter glue, googly eyes and all the wacky ways you can use pipe cleaners, then drop by the Rollin Art Centre for a fun craft every Saturday afternoon from 1-3 p.m., where you will be creating some fun memories and souvenirs in theme with the season.
No registration is required—just come on by. The cost is $15.
