LAST CHANCE FOR ROLLIN EXHIBIT
Time is running out to stop in at the Rollin Art Centre and view our current art exhibit. This show mixes two forms of creativity, from two different artists: potter Elspeth Watson and artist Dorothy Nicholson. “Form, Function and Fantasy”, is the title of their art exhibit, capturing a bit of whimsy, functionality and utilitarian. Hurry up, as this exhibit is only on until Nov. 3.
CHAOS AND CELTIC MUSIC
Join us for an evening of songs, stories and laughter, when the Community Arts Council brings to you an exciting evening with Celtic Chaos, while helping to support the Rollin Art Centre with this year’s big fundraiser. This talented group offers a contemporary take on traditional entertainment from the lands of the Celts and beyond.
Celtic Chaos band members are fun-loving folks that play soulful fiddle, solid cello, sweet accordion, Irish flute, penny whistle, grooving guitar and bass, with some local talent also joining in. The concert will be held at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 7 pm. Tickets are available at the Rollin Art Centre, all seats $25.
