Another painting year has come to a close for th Ashcroft Arts Club. We welcomed new members, new and exciting art, as well as our long time members.

The Art Show this year (Apr. 20-23) was a  resounding success, featuring painting, photography and very funky sculptures.

The first place winner of the Peoples Choice is Wet Spring by Pauline Ogilvie. First place in Students Choice is Leopard by Kobus Kitshoff. Second place pick in both catagories is Bobcat/TotemPole by Doug Tucker of Clinton.

Next up in our art world is the 2nd Annual PleinAir Paint-Out on May 22nd-23rd. Everyone is welcome to sign up for a fun time.

July and August will once again see our annual ArtWalk around Ashcroft. Lots going on this summer in our area.
