Check out www.alberniarts.com for our current art exhibit featuring Miroslava Gojdova.
This beautiful exhibit showcases soothing oil abstracts, exciting acrylic pours and macro photography.
Staff at the Rollin Art Centre has been working hard on bringing you virtual art exhibits. Yes, all our art exhibits will soon be featured online, so if you are unable to make any upcoming artist’s openings, you can now view them from the comforts of your own home or on the go.
GARDENS SET TO OPEN
The Rollin Art Centre is set to open its beautiful gardens and grounds beginning Tuesday, June 16.
From Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the grounds will be open to the public for you to wander and enjoy our beautifully manicured gardens. What better way to enjoy nature and remove yourself from self-isolation?
The gallery and gift shop (including washrooms) will remain closed to the public until further notice. We are, however, available for personal appointments. Curbside pick up will also be available. Just call 250-724-3412.
GIFT SHOP NOW ONLINE
The Rollin Art Centre will soon bring all of its one-of-a kind gift shop art pieces to you online.
We will have a wide range of items, all created by local artists, including pottery, woodworks, jewellery, stained glass, sun catchers, prints, paintings, art cards, First Nations artwork, glass etchings, birdhouses and so much more.
Please join us online soon at www.alberniarts.com. When you purchase from our gift shop, you are helping to support local artists as well as the Rollin Art Centre. We need your continued support.
We want to see what you’ve been doing!
More and more ideas are springing up to help keep children doing creative and fun projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. We would love to see them and be able to share them on our Facebook page.
Send us a video or photo of yourself and a project that you are currently working on or that you have completed. You can get more ideas if you tune into the Rollin Art Centre’s Facebook Page. Get your mom or dad to help take a video or photo of you creating art work and send it to Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget to give us written permission, otherwise we wont be able to post it. We are so excited to stay connected and see what you have all been working on during these crazy times.
