Arts around: exhibit showcases Valley's natural beauty
Photo show at Rollin
Our current art exhibit is a colourful showcase of photographs by Cara Baldwin and Kristi Dobson.
This joint exhibit captures Port Alberni’s natural and man-made beauty which comes to life in this eclectic display of images of the valley’s surroundings.
Cara and Kristi have spent the last few years taking an in-depth look at what encircled them throughout their childhood in the hopes of inspiring others to re-examine the potential that lies within us all.
Join us in the gallery for Kristi and Cara’s artist’s reception, Sat. July 12 from 1-3 p.m.
The exhibit runs until Aug. 2.
