Keremeos Arts Council news

Upcoming events and meetings of the Keremeos Arts Council

Keremeos Library Exhibit

Presently at the Keremeos Library is an art exhibit by Hedy Munawych.  It’s in honor of her 70th  wedding anniversary. The show is being held in the library as a large contingent of out of  town people will be coming for the celebration. Hedy has some interesting pieces depicting the far north but by far her best pieces are her flowers. It’s well worth a  special trip during library hours.

The Grist Mill Gift Shop

Kim English, Assistant Manager at the Grist Mill, would like us to pass along to our members that they are looking for handmade items in the $2.50 to $200 range for their gift shop.  According to her the best sellers are in the $5 to $20 range with a local flavor as people like items in this range as souvenirs. Contact Kim directly at kim@oldgristmill.ca for an appointment.

New Board of Directors

The last month has seen two changes in the board of directors.  Irene Hegi has taken over the Chairmanship from Keith Stewart who resigned for health reasons. Gabriel Villecourt has taken over for Fern Stewart as the Secretary Treasurer. Fern has had major Knee and Back pain problems for a long time and has to travel to the pain clinic often. Keith and Fern are both founding members of KADAC and we all thank then for their hard work and dedication during the incredibly trying time getting an arts council off the ground.

Membership Meeting

The last meeting before the summer recess will take place May 13 at 7 p.m. at Gibson House. No general meetings will be held in June, July or August. Our next general meeting  after the recess is scheduled for  the second Tuesday in September. Tentatively:- September 9, 2014 at 7 p.m. at  Gibson House.
