LOVE IS IN THE AIR
The Community Arts Council is holding a special on mystery book bags for the month of February.
Tickle your fancy with some fun romance reading and a sweet treat, too. For the month of February, $25 will get you 20 romance books and some chocolate.
The current art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre has been extended until March 27.
This exhibit is one you won’t want to miss. It features some pieces from the Community Arts Council’s permanent art collection, donated by Robert Aller. In 1995, Robert Aller donated many works of art—including four of his own paintings—to the Arts Council. This collection began while he was enrolled at the Vancouver School of art in 1946.
Part of his collection is now on display for everyone to enjoy. Special CD recordings of Robert Aller’s interviews are also playing throughout the exhibit. Don’t miss this opportunity to view the work of some of the most brilliant artists in Canadian history.
At this time, the Rollin Art Centre will not be accepting any more book donations. Thank you for your continued support.
The Community Arts Council is designing a new Alberni Valley artist and studio guide. If you are interested in being included in this brochure/guide, please call the Rollin Art Centre at 250-724-3412 for more information.
The guide will include local artists and a map. Five thousand guides will be printed and distributed to the tourist information centre and local hot spots. The extended deadline is Feb. 27, 2021.
