The Community Arts Council is putting out an invitation to all local artisans and crafters for the annual Mistletoe Market at the Rollin Art Centre for the month of December.
Due to COVID-19, all craft markets on the Island have been cancelled for this year. However, we are still holding ours with safety protocols in place. If you are interested in joining us this year, please call 250-724-3412 or stop by the Rollin Art Centre for more info. It’s going to be a great event!
The current art exhibit at Rollin Art Centre features local loved artist, Pam Turner and her grandson, Rylan Bourne.
The exhibit is titled INTRO: RETRO. INTRO: Rylan Bourne, a 14-year-old Grade 10 student at Victoria High School. RETRO: Pam Turner, a happy, proud grandma.
This show is a wonderful collection of abstract painting and acrylic on canvas, wood panels and collaged paper. It runs until Oct. 31.
DONATE BOTTLE RETURNS
Here is an easy way to help with much-needed funds for the Rollin Art Centre: donate all your empty bottles at 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.
MYSTERY BAG OF BOOKS
For just $20, you will get 10 books, all in the same genre, and you will be helping Rollin Arts Centre during this difficult time.
The genres are fiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, pre-teen chapter books (e.g. Nancy Drew) and children’s books. Bags are now available at the Rollin Art Centre. Get yours now, because they sell out fast!
CELTIC CHAOS TICKET HOLDERS
The Community Arts Council is very sad to announce that our Celtic Chaos for the Highlanders fundraiser has now been officially cancelled. Due to COVID-19, the Capitol Theatre is unable to hold performances of any numbers.
This was a fundraiser for us with our goal to raise much-needed funding. If you would like to return your ticket for a full refund, you may do so at the Rollin Art Centre. However, if you would like to donate the amount of your ticket, we would like to offer you a special tax receipt for that donation.
