Tea with Glen Mofford tunes

New exhibit, children's arts camps and more on the Alberni arts scene this week.

Glen Mofford is an amazing acoustic guitarist who has been entertaining people for many years, with his love of music. Join us on the Terrace, for two hours of this musical treat on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 1-3 p.m.

Glen plays an assortment of easy listening and many favourites, and is also open to any suggestions during his performance.

Tickets are still available, but seating is limited, and will sell out quickly. Make sure you reserve your tickets for our last Tea on the Terrace of the summer, with Paul Kurucz and the Travelers on Aug. 25.

Another reason to attend is our amazing caterer, Kimberly Kuzma of Harvest Thyme Fine Foods.

Please purchase your tickets today and help support the Rollin Art Centre with our summer fundraiser.

Tickets are $20 for each tea or $75 if you purchase for all four teas.

Next exhibit

The next art exhibit begins Aug. 4 and will run until Aug. 26 with Julian Growcott.

Julian will be showcasing his original acrylic paintings and has titled his exhibit, Post Invisible.

Since childhood, Growcott has had incredibly lucid dreams; dreams that are remembered vividly and work in conjunction with childhood memories of England. These memories and dreams, together, have  inspired the works the artist will display. Each one of them is an image now realized in acrylics.

Join him in the gallery on Saturday, Aug. 6 from 1-3 p.m.

Children’s art camps

Our next children’s art camp is drawing, beginning Aug. 2, 3 and 5.

If you have children between the ages of seven and 12 who love to draw or doodle, this is the camp for them.

Paper and pencils will be provided, but if you have your own special supplies, feel free to bring them.

Camps run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at 10:00 a.m. to12:30 p.m. for ages seven to nine and 1:00-3:30p.m. for ages 10-12 and features a new theme each week.

Fairy Tales runs Aug. 9, 10 and 12. Picture Books runs Aug. 16, 17 and 19 and to close out the summer and prepare for the new school year we have School Supplies Aug. 23, 24 and 26.

These summer art programs promise a creative outlet children need and enjoy.
