Next art exhibit
The next Rollin Art Centre, from July 7 to 29, is another wonderful exhibit featuring animal portrait pencil artist, Don Bergen: “My love of animals has become my main drawing theme.”
If you have a love for animals you will enjoy this showcase of artwork of all types of amazing animals.
Join us in the gallery Saturday, July 9 from 1-3 p.m. and meet Don, who will be having a special draw to win a free 8 X 10 pencil drawing portrait of your own pet.
Don stated, “In keeping with the generosity of our community with a heart for giving to charities, I will be donating 10 per cent of any sales of the last week of my show to the S.P.C.A. I’m hoping this will assist in feeding some of our unwanted animals. I hope this will help in some small way.”
