Keremeos is playing host to the Young at Art Show  at the Gibson House Gallery  this weekend, Nov 16 and 17, from    10 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily.

Admission is free. The show features young artists  from  five to 18.

Thirty-two entrants have 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  art work will be displayed in village businesses over the holidays.

The art show continues through Sunday, November 17, so there is still time to come and see the great young  artists in the valley.

The address for the Gibson House is  located at 521  11th Avenue.  Please take some time to enjoy this event.
