What’s Up at Cranbrook Arts

February 2019

Calling all Mount Baker Secondary School Art students for the month of February!

Cranbrook Arts will hold its Youth exhibit in February this year and work is due in by Saturday, Feb. 2.

We have $50 cash prizes to be awarded for ‘Best in Show’ pieces in different categories. We can’t wait to see what first semester and other art students, bring us to show to their community. We are very proud of the many talented art students in this area and it is a pleasure to showcase their work once a year. This exhibit will run to end of February.

Although Jeanie Miller’s exhibit ‘Awakening is now over, we do still have several of her paintings in the gallery.

We regret to inform artists wishing to hold a solo exhibit that the Gallery is fully booked this year. Please let us know if you wish to book for 2020 – we have a few months left.

Artists wishing to sell in the gift shop are reminded to renew their memberships and if new to our society, to submit their work for adjudication.

February 9: Giovanna Paz will be holding her second wire jewelry workshop. This is a short 4 hour workshop in which you will accomplish a lot. Giovanna will help you make and complete a pendant or beautiful bracelet in this one session.

February 23 and 24: John de Jong will be holding another of his very popular acrylic painting, two day, workshops.

Barb Guillen, our felting instructor extraordinaire, has promised a hat-making workshop in April. Stay tuned for the date.

We frequently have requests for classes that we have no instructors for. If you have an art or craft skill you feel able to give instruction in, to a small group, we would love to hear from you.

The Gallery was freshened up with new paint and displays after Christmas. We invite you to visit, browse, enjoy the work of our many local artists and perhaps register for a class.

See you in the Gallery.
