CDAC hosts an elephantine event
Cranbrook and District Arts Council officially opened phase one of their newly acquired art space with the launch of their cooperative book project Fourteen Trumpeting Elephants. The book has been a runaway success so far with over half of the first print run sold. A slightly embellished story of Cranbrook Ed and the notorious Cranbrook historical event, forms the basis of this book.
The 1401 space was stampeded very quickly on Sunday with curious locals, friends and supporters of the arts. Visitors were treated to the opportunity to have their books signed, Christmas treats and a first tour of this long-awaited building addition to Cranbrook’s art scene. Artists who participated in this project, including some of the students whose drawings formed the circus tickets are pictured below.
Cranbrook Arts invites members of the public to check out their new Activity Guide for January, February and March. A copy can be picked up at the Gift Shop on Baker St. or found on their Facebook page.
Cranbrook arts would once again like to thank Columbia Basin Trust for their support through the Community Initiatives and Capital Project programs. Thanks also goes to Cultural Spaces Canada for helping us to grow.
