The Village Gallery (under the auspices of MAC) invites artists and artisans in the community to join MAC and participate in “Stronger Together” for the month of September.

During the quarantine, Lumby resident, Ernie Hurd joined the Facebook page “A World of Hearts” and decided to contribute to the theme. With help from his siblings, he cut out a line of plywood hearts and placed them along Whitevale Road at the edge of his property and posted photos to the “A World of Hearts” page. The 12 pieces he collected from various artists shown on that FB page will be exhibited at the show.
Would you like to add your art to this show?
The Monashee Arts Council is putting out a call to local artists who have created works during the past four months. The show will be mounted on Sunday, August 2nd and will run from August 3-29, 2020 at The Village Gallery. Photography, paintings, drawings, and a limited amount of 3D art will be accepted. Many people have used the time to unleash their inner artist and express feelings about the pandemic as well as the quarantine.
