Art in the Library and Chamber

by Val van der Poel on behalf of the Arts Council

For the final art displays of the year Art in the Library and Art in the Chamber each offer a group exhibit to delight your senses and stir your imagination.

Art in the Chamber features “A Gift of Art”, a group of ten artists displaying a variety of wonderful artwork. Here is what the artists say about themselves:



Watercolour by Darlene McDowell called ‘Pink Rose’ 

Also on display at the Chamber of Commerce is the beautiful and insightful jewelry and glass art by Cherie Rensing of Celtic Fire Design. The jewelry can be found in the glass cabinets. The exhibit at the Chamber can be seen during business hours from October 30 to December 20. Come and enjoy our gift to you and maybe get a gift for someone on your Christmas list.

The Art in the Library display is an eclectic array of art by members of the Creston Art Club. Art by familiar names like Richard Mitton and Laura Leeder will be joined for this exhibit by the art of new club members Ken Alexander, Georgia Nielsen and Colin Jobi.

Not all of the 40 or so members of the art club will have art on display but visitors to the library will find a wealth of color and enjoyment on the walls from November 2 to December 28. Remember, you can contact the artists if you see something you would like to own.

The Creston Art Club meets every Wednesday at St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church to paint and share camaraderie and is always happy to welcome new members.

As coordinator for these art displays I want to thank the Community Arts Council of Creston, the Creston Public Library and the Chamber of Commerce for the use of these venues which give artists from Yahk to Riondel the chance to share their art with residents and visitors to the valley.

Artists wishing to be able to exhibit in these venues next year can contact Val at 250-866-5772.
