The annual Ashcroft Art Club Show and Sale is almost here

Dozens of artists have their paintings and artwork ready to be enjoyed by all.

By Alice Durksen

The Ashcroft Art Club’s Annual Fine Art Show and Sale at St. Albans Church Hall in Ashcroft is coming soon! Opening night (adults only) is Friday, April 20 from 6 to 9 p.m., so come along for the unveiling and an opportunity to meet many of the artists whose work will be on display.

All are welcome to come view the show on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, April 21 to 23, from noon to 5 p.m. each day.

All the club members from Ashcroft, Cache Creek, and the surrounding area are delighted about finishing up their entries for the show, in mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolour, and mixed media paintings, as well as photography and sculpture.

John Keats wrote in one of his poems, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” We are looking forward to seeing you at the show, as we are excited to share our latest efforts to create beauty that will bring joy to all.

Looking ahead, the Winding Rivers Arts & Performance Society and the Ashcroft Art Club are presenting the 2018 Plein Air Paint-Out from June 1 to 3, when artists from all over B.C. will flock to paint our impressive surroundings. Everyone enjoys the show and sale of the paintings they have completed on the weekend, which will take place on the afternoon of June 3 at St. Alban’s Hall.
