District Arts Council played host to the Young at Art Show at the Gibson House Gallery last weekend, Nov 16 and 17.
Admission was free to the show, which featured young artists from five to 18.
Thirty-two entrants had 65 pieces of art on display in the show.
“We were hoping for more – we want to get the kids involved in art,” said Keremeos and District Arts Council Vice Chair Marty Menzies.
The group is also in the process of putting together a Christmas drawing program for kids using “bells” as the theme.
The program is open to children from one to eight years old. Applications may be picked up at the library or infocentre.
The art work will be displayed in village businesses over the holidays.
The South Similkameen Arts Society also put together a fund raising event Friday, November 15 at the Ranch Restaurant.
A dinner and silent auction was followed by an evening of entertainment with performances by local groups which included the Corner Turtles, Evan Robillard and Elam and Friends.
Funds raised will go to support local arts of all categories.
