Commnity invited to art society gallery opening Thursday night

Wonder is the theme of the Cariboo Art Society’s 68th annual show and sale opening at the Station House Gallery Thursday, June 7.

Wonder is the theme of the Cariboo Art Society’s 68th annual show and sale opening at the Station House Gallery tonight, June 7.

The June show features the latest works of 11 art society members, Sharon Prevette, Elisabeth Hoelderl, Karen Mayers, Kris Andrews, Jennifer Bazan, Yvette Rogers, Lorne Lazzarotto, Gladys Wheatley, Anne Kohut, Marilyn Dickson, Jenni Bazan and Tracy Pajamaki.

Everyone’s vision of “wonder” is different of course and works in this show reflect the wonderful memories and experiences of individual members working in their own styles and mediums.

For the past two years the artists have met at 10 a.m. every Saturday morning in the new Central Cariboo Arts Centre next to city hall.

The art society has a history in the Cariboo dating back to founding members such as A.Y. Jackson, Vivian Cowan and Sonia Cornwall, who while gone now, continue to inspire more recent members with the legacy of work they have left.

During their Saturday sessions members new and old glean fresh ideas from each other.

Trying new mediums is part of the process of learning.

The opening reception is tonight, June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. and everyone is welcome to attend.

Many of the featured artists will be there to discuss their work and maybe inspire “wonder” in a new crop of people wishing to enrich their artistic side.

The next two gallery openings in July and August will be on Wednesday evenings rather than the traditional Thursday evenings to accommodate the Performances in the Park which are held on Thursday evenings during the summer.

Community Roots: Inspirations From the Potato House, will open July 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. followed by the play Potato Dreams.

The opening for the show Conspiracy Case by Edwin Janzen, will be Aug. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.
