A pop up art show turned out to be the creator of

success for local artists.

The South Similkameen Arts Society held a pop

up sale at members Lee Simmons and Julie Hinton

home on Saturday.

Several paintings, soy candles and other products

made by local artisans were sold.

“We just think it’s really fun,” Simmons said

during an interview on her deck.

Paintings from a variety of artists were setup

throughout the yard and on the covered side deck

and even in the backyard for people to view.

“This house was setup to do this kind of thing.

There are lots of hanging spaces and the front and

back yard are perfect to showcase different artists,”

Simmons said.

Several local artists were on site to talk to potential

customers and a few were even creating new

pieces.

“I think this is just fabulous. The thing about

creating art is that you get so much of it and you

need to share it with other people even if it’s just for

an afternoon or if you sell it,” artist Judy Millar said

as she tried her hand at acrylics.

The novice acrylics painter even received a few

tips from Simmons as she’s more experienced.

“That’s what it’s all about is sharing ideas. I

really enjoy being a part of SASS,” Millar said.

Simmons and Hinton plan to hold more pop up

sales throughout the summer at their home on 6th

Avenue in Keremeos.

SASS members looking to showcase their work

should contact Simmons to set that up.
