Arts Council installs permanent fibre art display

The Arts Council for the South Shuswap is gearing up for a three-day Culture Crawl in May.

The council received a $9,700 Arts Based Community Development Grant from the BC Arts Council last year to lead a community participation art engagement project that resulted in a permanent art installation.

“A Journey Begins,” a fibre art installation led by Shuswap artists Melissa Nasby and Lynn Erin, will be installed in the Arts Council office in the lower level of Carlin Hall.

“We will be having a community reveal for the installation at a wine and cheese reception at the Arts Council on Thursday, May 18,” says arts council administrator Karen Brown. “Salmon Arm artist Justin Maas will also have an exhibit in our dance studio, and we will have the arts council studios open to tour.”

The evening will be the kickoff to the Shuswap Lake Culture Crawl, a three-day event of community hall crawls featuring music, artisan collectives, First Nations art, cultural tours and more happening in the South Shuswap.
