Art society show moves to Signal Point

The Cariboo Art Society has moved its May show at the Station House Gallery to the Signal Point Event Room for the first two weeks of June.

The Cariboo Art Society has moved its May show at the Station House Gallery to the Signal Point Event Room for the first two weeks of June.

The show is called Paint it Forward and is a reflection of the collaborative work by art society members over the past year.

The study began with a “linear wave” constructed by the artists in which individuals made fragments of an image which were collectively assembled into a single organic whole.

Local artists like Dwayne Davis and Beatrix Linde hosted workshops throughout the season with the artists. The products of these workshops included four wall-sized murals.

One of their collaborative projects was to create individual T-shirts for themselves using a gelli printing technique. Artists attending the opening wore their shirts as part of the show.

Through drawing games and experimentation, this exhibition showcases the potential of a diverse artistic community at play.

The show at Signal Point Gaming will be open to the public from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. until June 13 except for hours when the room is booked for private functions.

The closed times are Sunday, June 7 from noon to 4 p.m.; Tuesday, June 9 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; Wednesday, June 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday, June 11 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
