Rollin exhibit features watercolours

A colouring book, a new exhibit and more on the Alberni arts scene.

Everything Fitz

The current art exhibit features artist Carol Schulz and her colourful water colour paintings. This exhibit, titled- Impressions of the Seasons, runs until Oct. 29. Carol’s paintings capture the vibrant colours of autumn while whispering the soft colours of spring.

Every wall is covered by beautiful landscapes celebrating all seasons.

Join us in the gallery on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 1-3 p.m. for an opportunity to meet Schulz and share some refreshments.

Colouring book

We have decided to give another extension for adult colouring book applications in hopes that everyone takes the time to help make this a successful book.

This colouring book will highlight all the wonderful landmarks and special places the Alberni Valley is known for.

Please submit your 8” x 10” line drawing, black and white only, to the Rollin Art Centre for an opportunity to have your drawings published in a colouring book, just in time for the holidays.

Young or old, and everyone in between, this is an opportunity to share your doodles with everyone.

It doesn’t matter if you are a skilled artist, this project is for everyone to have fun with while helping raise funds for the Rollin Art Centre. The new deadline is Saturday, Oct. 15.
