Youth Exhibit and more at Cranbrook Arts in April

Cranbrook Arts is very much looking forward to their April exhibit for artists between the ages of 15 and 25 years.

This adjudicated exhibit will be on display from April 4 to 28. The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday, April 8 from 2-4 p.m., when cash awards will be presented.

The Youth Exhibit is one of the top art events in Cranbrook and the Cranbrook & District Arts Council has seen many young artists benefit from the great community support and exposure. This year’s event promises to be colourful, eclectic and jaw dropping.

Mark your calendars, check out the Facebook page and drop into the Gallery on Baker Street during the month of April to see the show.

Graham Flatt is coming back

Graham is an internationally known, award-winning master water-colourist who’s been teaching workshops for over 20 years. He’s well known for breaking the rules of watercolour and taking his students on a journey that’s fun, fantastic and a powerful learning experience.

He’ll be guiding the Arts Council’s five-day workshop May 8-12, at the beautiful St. Eugene Resort. What a great setting for this event! Registration is limited to 15 so early registration is advisable.

“Demos will be varied and will include those areas of interest or concern as determined by the group. It is of paramount importance to me for everyone to realize that this is ‘their workshop’ and I am coming to meet each and every one and help them move forward in the direction they needwant to go. They are not coming to see me, rather I am coming to see them,” said Flatt.

Members’ rate is $350 for the five days and non-members’ is $400. For registration or more information contact CDAC by phone at 250-426-4223 or email [email protected]

Graham’s work can be viewed at his website.

The Spring Children’s day camp wrapped up over spring break with much paint, clay, sewing and papier-mache work being created (pictured within this article and in the lead image). Watch for upcoming professional Development Day workshops through April, May and June.

Cranbrook Arts, in conjunction with the Sam Steele Society, is pleased to announce the appointment of Patricia Gilhuly, who will coordinate a community mural to be completed at Sam Steele Days in Belmont Park.

This project is funded through a Canada 150 government grant. The mural, made up of over 700 small squares, will include participation of a cross-section of our community’s population. We look forward to seeing this project take shape. The result will be a surprise!

See you in the gallery.
