Artbeat…arts & culture from the edge

The Village Gallery will be hosting a “Black Friday” sale November 28th.  Open extended hours that day, 10am-8pm, the gallery will have sale prices on regular items already in stock as well as a special clearance & seconds display.  Shop local, support our many talented artists, and get ready for the gift-giving season.

The Monashee Arts Council is very happy to announce that the Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble will be performing again in Lumby this year.  We will be hosting this talented group of entertainers at the White Valley Community Hall on Saturday, December 13th at 7pm (following the Elves Shelves community event earlier that day).  Tickets will be available in the next couple of weeks – watch this weekly column or check us out on our website/facebook page for more information

The Monashee Arts Council would like to thank the many community members who turned out to take part in the 1st Meet The Artist Gala Event which was hosted at the Lumby Branch of the ORL on November 6th.  Artists, attendees, and representatives from the Okanagan Regional Library and MAC enjoyed a lovely evening of art and sharing.

The Monashee Arts Council supports and hosts many arts events in our community every year.  It is membership renewal time – why not join the Monashee Arts Council?  Memberships are only $15 for the year.  New members (artists and art-supporters alike!) are always welcome.  We live in such an artistically diverse and culturally rich community and there are many opportunities to support and promote the many creative residents among us, as well as to bring in talented people to educate and entertain us from other regions.  Contact Jennifer Greenwood, Arts & Culture Program Coordinator by phone at 778-473-3029 or email at monasheeartscouncil@gmail.com for more information on becoming a member of the arts council.  Thank you!
