Help support local artists by viewing “TOGETHER,” a First Nations art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre.
Inspired by local First Nations artist Cecil Dawson, this exhibit includes the talents of Dawson, Allen Halverson, Nigel Atkin, Lori Shone-Kusmin and Jennifer Taylor.
The exciting exhibit touches upon significant social issues and features First Nations paintings, surfboard designs, carved river otters, drawings, cedar paddles and so much more.
You only have until the end of September to see the exhibit, as it ends Oct. 2.
DONATE BOTTLE RETURNS
Here is an easy way to help with much needed funds for the Rollin Art Centre: donate all your empty bottles to our local bottle depot (3533 Fourth Avenue).
When you return your bottles, our account is #E100093. Mention you are donating to the Community Arts Council. Yes, it’s just that easy.
How it works:
1. Put your containers in clear plastic bags (no sorting needed).
2. At the express depot, use our phone number (250-724-3412) to log in at the kiosk and print your bag labels.
3. Put a label on each of your bags and drop them off.
Tell all your friends and families, as this is a great way to help us support local art and help to maintain a vibrant arts community.
