"eARTh" Exhibition, Mayne Island Library: Fri Apr 4

Drawing on the word “ART” contained within the word “Earth”, the Trincomali Community Arts Council exhibition focuses on the environment and its influence on the arts this April.

Spring is definitely in the air here on Mayne, and in April we celebrate its return, Earth Day, Easter and Arbor Day (for our neighbours to the south); all heralds to our love of the eARTh. This show will feature a variety of work from several local artists that deal with themes of nature, growth, rebirth, and ways of looking at our relationship with the planet.

With an opening on April 4th at the Mayne Island Library (5 - 8 pm), we encourage any artists interested in participating to contact Stephen Cropper before 5 pm on April 3rd at (250) 539-2206.

The “eARTh” show leads up to the upcoming April 2015 Nature & Arts Festival, being spearheaded by the Mayne Island Conservancy, currently under works. 

In conjunction with the upcoming April “eARTh” show, TCAC is hosting a special EarthArt event Saturday, April 12 at Bennett Bay Park. Come and join us for an opportunity to explore site-specific nature-based art making with some local artists. We’ll meet in the parking lot at 1pm. Dress for the weather and bring water & a snack.

This event is family friendly, with a suggested donation of $5. Pre-registration is encouraged. Call Tina Farmilo for more info, (250) 539-2402.

For further information please contact Andrew Ferneyhough (250) 222-8258.
