SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
The Community Arts Council in Port Alberni is excited to hold a pandemic-inspired art exhibit.
If you are a local artist who has been staying at home for the past year being creative, we want to see your work! Apply today and join us for our first COVID Invitational art exhibit from Oct. 5-30, 2021.
One to three art pieces from any medium will be accepted. Applications are available at the Rollin Art Centre at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Argyle Street. Call 250-724-3412 for more information.
ART EXHIBIT EXTENDED
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, as it features some pieces from the Community Arts Council’s permanent art collection donated by Robert Aller in 1995. Special CD recordings of Robert Aller’s interviews will be playing throughout the exhibit and part of his collection will be on display for everyone to enjoy.
Don’t miss this opportunity to view the work of some of the most brilliant artists in Canadian history.
The Rollin Art Centre is now accepting applications from all visual artists and artist groups to exhibit their work in our fine arts gallery during the 2022 calendar year.
Application forms are available at the Rollin Art Centre or on our website. The deadline is April 30, 2021.
At this time, the Rollin Art Centre will not be accepting any more book donations. Thank you for your continued support.
