Time of renewal at Rollin

Book sales, membership renewals, a call to artists and more on the Alberni arts scene this week.

The next art exhibit begins at the Rollin Art centre, Thurs. Feb. 11, with artist Nancy Wilson. Nancy will be showcasing a collection of acrylic paintings in a variety of subjects, such as local scenes, animals and flowers. The title of this exhibit will be “Nancy Wilson’s Rainbow Originals”. Join us in the gallery for refreshments Sat. Feb. 13 from 1-3 pm for a chance to meet Nancy and talk about art and her inspirations.

Books welcome

What better way to help the Rollin Art Centre than by donating your gently used books to the annual book sale?

Rollin Art Centre is currently accepting  gently used books, DVDs, CDs, and puzzles for their annual book sale, which  takes place on May 13–14. Please, no magazines, National Geographic, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest, textbooks or worn books.

Books can be dropped off at Rollin Art Centre just inside the main door, under the staircase in the big wooden box.

This is one of the Community Arts Council’s biggest fundraisers.

Renewal time

To all Community Arts Council members, and everyone else who would like to help support the arts in the valley, memberships can now be renewed.
