The Station House Gallery has set the theme for the 2014 summer showcase and is putting out the call for proposals from artists, says gallery manager Diane Toop.

The theme will be My Williams Lake in celebration of Williams Lake’s 85th birthday.

Toop says they are looking for memorabilia to display at the gallery along with the art work for the exhibition.

In its fundraising efforts for the summer show the gallery is hosting an event called CHEW THE FAT.

“We have big plans for this,” Toop says.

“A day outside the Station House with events, beer garden, food, music, children’s activities and talk, lots of talk about the old days. We plan to invite some old-timers who have lots of stories to share and hope you can join us.”

The show will run July 3 to August 28 with the grand opening and fundraiser held on Saturday, July 5.

The deadline on artist applications for the summer show is May 24 by 5 p.m.

All mediums are welcome and encouraged.

Everyone in the Cariboo Area has a story of how they came to be in Williams Lake or about something of their life or history in Williams Lake. The Station House Gallery challenges the citizens of Williams Lake and the surrounding rural areas to tell us their stories through some form of art to be displayed in the gallery for the months of July and August.

This story can be in the form of music, poetry, stories, visual arts, textiles, sculpture, video, performance art, impressions, installations, collectables or artifacts important to your life.

A written story to accompany any works submitted would be displayed along with the work to explain how the piece relates to the individual’s life, story or impression of Williams Lake.
