The next art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre features Victoria artist Joanne Thomas.
Known for her watercolour series on mason jars, Joanne brings her delightful collection to the walls of the gallery.
“This series began as a family history project and has evolved into a larger work that intertwines food and ecological security with family history,” she explained.
Join us in the gallery on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 1-3 p.m. for refreshments and an opportunity to meet Joanne. This exhibit runs from Oct. 18- Nov. 23.
MARKET AT THE MILL
Join us for a community tradition: celebrating our annual Christmas at the Mill.
Every year the Community Arts Council brings a variety of artisans and crafters to the Mill to ring in the Christmas season. This year promises to be bigger and better, with the Mill light-up, trains, bonfires, a smores bar, carollers and so much more.
If you are interested in renting a table ($80 for three days), please contact the Rollin Art Centre for more information. Dates for this year are Nov. 30 – Dec. 2. Call 250-724-3412 to book your table.
