Colourful art show

The Clinton Country Crafters' annual show and sale was a success, and plans for 2017 are already afoot.

Some of the colourful artwork on display at the Clinton Country Crafters show and sale in October.

The second Clinton Country Artists art sale and show was held October 21 to 23. Painters from Logan Lake, Ashcroft, Cache Creek, and of course Clinton took part. The painters were joined by our master carver and other artisans.

Club president Pauline Englund coordinated the silent auction, where several items were hotly contested. We thank all the people who visited for their generosity. We hope you enjoyed the considerable talent on display. Plans are already in place for next year, when the sale and show will be held October 27 to 29.

The Clinton Country Artists meet on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Clinton Seniors’ Association building. Anyone interested is welcome to join us. For more information, please call Sandy Reed at (250) 457-9560.
