The next exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre takes a look at the talent that resides in the Alberni Valley.
Port Alberni artists Cynthia Bonesky and Jan Vriesen present “Landscapes and Florals” in mediums of acrylic on canvas and wood panels, as well as oils. Bonesky’s florals are so realistic you can smell the fragrance, while Vriesen’s landscapes show depth, making you feel like you are standing in the picture.
Bonesky and Vriesen will be in the gallery on Saturday, Nov. 7 from 1-3 p.m. Join us, practicing social distancing, for an opportunity to meet these artists. The exhibit runs from Nov. 4 to 28.
