I’m amazed at the number of artistic people I’ve met locally! Almost every time I’m at a community function and the conversation turns to art, someone new tells me about their own artistic endeavor. There seem to be many small groups that get together to paint on a regular basis. And I know of two larger groups, the Sloppy Palettes and the Gibson House group, that have been around for many years.
In the past, the Gibson House has hosted workshops and casual drop-ins but this year they are planning their first Christmas Art Show, December 15 and 16, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature four local artists showcasing their works in acrylic abstracts, watercolour landscapes, and Paverpol statues. Three of the artists, Bonny Roberts, Myra Hammond and Lisa Zbinden, are members of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and Judy Chisholm is a Certified Paverpol Instructor. Their work will be available for purchase and will include smaller pieces for the thrifty shopper.
Support the arts in Keremeos and attend the show to see some of our local artistic talent! Remember, an original piece of art makes a great gift for someone special this Christmas!
