If you haven’t already created your Rembrandt or Picasso, there’s still time to unleash your creativity.
The Oliver Community Arts Council is holding its 30th annual Fall Arts Show and Sale. There are eight categories in which to enter your masterpiece.
Submissions are due by September 13. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Oliver Community Arts Council’s website.
This year’s show is set for Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 6. Saturday is free and open to all visitors from 3-9 pm. You receive a ballot and asked to vote for your favourite piece in each category.
The votes are tallied and winners are awarded prizes during Saturday’s opening reception from 7-9 pm.
Sunday’s admission is only through a Festival of the Grape ticket. This year the show is featuring an exhibit by artist Glenn Clark of Penticton. As well, the council is delighted to showcase its own quilting magician, Marianne Parsons. Her artistic quilts have achieved high honours. This year she was recognized at the highest level with a win at the National Quilt Show.
As you look around at all the artwork, take your time to view the Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers display of their “cottages” on the floor and “The Ripoff Artists” annual challenge of “Kandinsky” on the stage.
All the artwork entered in the show is for sale. It’s the ideal chance to purchase that piece of artwork you’ve been looking for. You’ll also want to take a look at the silent auction offerings.
