An Invitation has been extended…

Being an Arrowsmith FCA artist can bring about wonderful and surprising connections! One such connection is an invitation which has been extended to all members of our chapter to participate in the Solstice Arts Festival and Days with the Arts in the Rollin Art Centre, Port Alberni. This is an opportunity for artists who may not have a studio to display your artwork in a public venue.

During this two day weekend event, ARTS, music, culture and heritage are celebrated. Beginning Friday June 14th (10:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and concluding Saturday June 15th (11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.), the Rollin Arts Centre will be a hub of activities that include music in the garden, a self-guided artist’s gallery and studio tour, children’s activity tent, food truck and much more.

During the weekend, there are also many activities taking place through-out the Arts District, with performances at the Capitol Theatre and PORT Day at Tyee Landing, as well as activities with Port Authority. An added bonus is that there will be a cruise ship in on the Saturday of this event – June 15th!

As part of the promotions, there will be a large media blitz leading up to the weekend – on Shaw TV, our website, Facebook, and posters. We’d love for you to help get the message out there with your own social media contacts, promoting this wonderful family friendly community event!

The fee for artists to be included in the “Days with the Arts”, which takes place outside on the terrace or main garden, is $60.  This fee will entitle you to an area approx. 10’ X 10’ and a table that is 30” X 72”. You are responsible for any tent coverage for your table and items. Set-up is Friday June 14, 9-10 am.

DEADLINE for entry to participate in the Days with the Arts at the Rollin Art Centre during the Solstice Arts Festival is May 31st, 2019. (There will be NO refunds on cancelled entries after May 15th.)  For an entry form, or if you have any questions, please contact Melissa or Roberta  at 250.724.3412.
