The Monashee Arts Council will once again be hosting a critiqued Art Show at this year at the Lumby Days Family Festival.  We invite local artists in any medium to participate in this year's show which is themed "Local Inspiration" and will run June 8th-10th. Participants must be a current (2018) member of the Monashee Arts Council ($15/yr).  Artists can submit up to three pieces, ready to display/hang, clearly labeled with name, medium, and price.  There is a display fee of $5 per piece.

                Remember, a few years ago we had a local theatre production The Moose Under Coyote Sleeping celebrating the history of Lumby.  The show was successfully produced and well received by the public.

                Since then a number of interesting things have happened locally.  We came up with the idea of a cabaret show which would draw upon current events and how these affect our daily lives.  People have interesting stories to tell which can serve as the ground material for dramatic performances.  People have hopes and fears which can be expressed in music, drama and story.

The Monashee Arts Council has entered into an agreement with the Okanagan Regional Library (Lumby) to offer a program to raise the awareness in the community of our local artists.  This project will provide a venue for local artists to showcase their work in the Lumby Branch, as well as take part in evening/weekend events during which the public can meet the artists to discuss their pieces.


We are very excited at the Monashee Arts Council to be able to start work on this great new community project!
