The Ashcroft Arts Club’s annual Show and Sale offers the public the opportunity to view and possibly purchase exquisite locally produced artworks.

Local artists set to shine

Last year, the annual art show had almost 200 pieces of artwork from 30 local artists.

Imagine, for close to 50 years the Ashcroft Arts Club has presented its Annual Fine Art Show and Sale at St. Albans Anglican Church Hall, 501 Brink St. As is the tradition, the members from Ashcroft and the outlying areas are readying their entries in preparation for Opening Night on April 17,  6-9 pm.

Adults only are invited for Opening Night due to the crowd, but all are invited to attend Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, April 18 through 21, noon to 5pm .

Oil, acrylic and other water colour media, photography, and sculpture will all be represented in the show. We are excited to be able share our latest efforts and have time to discuss our art with you. Hope to see you there.

Looking ahead, Winding River Arts and Performance with the help of Ashcroft Art Club are presenting the Plein Air Paint-Out, May 22-24 when artists from all over BC flock to paint our impressive surroundings and show their paintings.

Art Walk is the local summer art activity in July and August and, as always, those who are artistic are invited to join us when our meetings resume in September. Check us out at our website,
