ROLLIN TO OPEN
The Rollin Art Centre will re-open on Feb. 2 with an exhibit featuring some pieces from the Rollin Art Centre’s permanent collection, donated by the late Robert Aller.
In 1995, Port Alberni artist Robert Aller donated many works of art, including four of his own paintings, to the Community Arts Council. This collection began while he was enrolled at the Vancouver School of Art in 1946.
Beginning Feb. 2, 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.
