The definitive word on this, that and the other in Alberni's arts and entertainment scene.

Student are rises at Rollin

Art in the Schools will be the next Art exhibit at Rollin Art Centre, starting May 14 and running until June 8. Students from local elementary schools and Community Living who took part with local artists in Art in the Schools will have their artwork on display during this unique exhibit.

An artists’ reception will be held on Saturday, May 25 from 1-3 p.m. at the Rollin gallery. Come out and meet these up-and-coming artists and help them experience what being an artist is all about.
