Artistic Visions offering chance to experience Creston Valley creativity

Web Lead

This summer, the Artistic Visions group will be putting on an exhibition of local art at the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre.

The show will include a multitude of artistic disciplines, including painting, drawing, metalwork, photography, jewelry, glasswork, weaving, pottery and fabric painting. The show opens July 1 and runs right through to Sept. 4. Most items will be available for sale and a member of the group will be on site Monday-Saturday to answer any questions about any of the exhibits.

There will also be an open house 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. July 12 with an opportunity to meet many of the artists. Refreshments will be available.

The group is comprised of Aaron Weitman, Cherie Rensing, Carolyn Stone, Carol Huscroft, Emmie Roelofse, Grace Tyler, Gloria Elliot, Harry Miller, Jenny Steenkamp, Jennifer Huscroft, Jeff Banman and Val van der Poel.

Joining them for the show as invited guests are members of the Creston Valley Mudders, who will be showing a range of their fantastic pottery, Linda Bullock with her stunning hand dyed silk scarves and BC Wildlife Federation artist of the year Guy Hobbs with prints of some of his latest works. Grace Tyler will be showing her painting series, Creston Cottages, so come see if one of them is yours.

This is a great opportunity to experience the creativity of the Creston Valley.
