The Campbell River Women’s Centre is gearing up for its sixth annual Public Art Exhibition: “Celebrating Women 2013”, which will be held in the Tidemark Theatre Gallery February 20 to March 12.

“Celebrating Women” is a themed, non-juried art show that aims to celebrate women and to explore their many and varied connections to the world around them.

This year’s show will also, in a sub-theme, explore the concept of “transformation”. The show has been designed to be inclusive and accessible, so submissions in a wide variety of media and from artists of all ages and genders will be displayed.

The Centre is inviting artists and members of the greater community to come together to express and share their creative vision by submitting original art for this dynamic exhibition that not only celebrates women but also showcases the creativity of our community.

Those interested in entering an original piece of art for the show, should contact the Women’s Centre at 250-287-3044 no later than February 19.

An Opening Reception for the show will be held on Sunday, Feb. 24, between 1 - 3 p.m. and will feature live music by Matt Whitehead and Amy Mulloin, and belly dancers extraordinaire: The Shimmy Sisters.

Admission is by donation and everyone is welcome.
