Media mixes in current show
The Rollin Art Centre’s current art exhibit features two very talented local artists, Elspeth Watson and Norm Nicholson. This exhibit showcases the many new and exciting works from potter Elspeth Watson and beautiful water colours by Norm Nicholson. Elspeth has put a Japanese spin on this exhibit; Pottery is not just utilitarian, but beautiful and graceful. Norm’s watercolours are soothing to the eye, with his beautiful blending of light and colour, capturing his world travels.
This exhibit will run until Nov. 15.
If you are one of the lucky ones to have painted a banner for 2014, they are available for purchase now at the Rollin Art Centre for $25. Located at the corner of 8th and Argyle, the gallery is open Tue. to Sat. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
