Calling all artists out there! Here is your opportunity to showcase your artwork at the Rollin Art Centre in 2022.
We are accepting applications from all visual artists and/or artist groups to exhibit their work in our Fine Arts Gallery during the 2022 calendar year. Application forms are available at the Rollin Art Centre or you can download an application at www.alberniarts.com. The gallery is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Argyle Street and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday.
The deadline is April 30.
The current art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre features local artist, Jim Sears. This is Jim’s first art exhibit at Rollin, titled Coastal Influences, so please show your support by stopping by the gallery.
This exhibit mixes pen and ink with a watercolour wash and captures images from the West Coast Trail, the Maritimes, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The exhibit runs until April 30.
GARDEN IS READY
The Rollin Art Centre gardens are looking great. Maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers, the gardens are the perfect place to hold your intimate summer wedding. 2021 dates are still available. The gardens and grounds also make a wonderful backdrop for your photographs.
