On July 4, Riondel’s Circle of Friends Artisan Shoppe will be hosting an event in honour of resident Wallace Adkins, who shared his creativity through painting, landscaping and encouraging youngsters to explore their own talent.

Circle of Friends Artisan Shoppe will host a free art event, as Adkins often did, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m, when participants can try their hand with various mediums. There will be lots of fun, plus gifts and self-produced art objects to take home. All ages welcome, so get out your painting clothes, bring your parents or children, and join in.

At the end of the day, the shop will keep on permanent display the banners guests will work on communally to honour the day and the spirit of Adkins.
