All’s Faire


A warm spring day attracted a stream of visitors to the Spring Arts Faire all day on Saturday April 5. First booth at the Faire (above):  Board members Bernice Myllyniemi and Arleyene Farnworth say “Hello!” at the arts council’s welcome table. There was a flurry of spring arts events to promote, along with plugging the activities and specials of member arts groups  and businesses.

Three door prizes, donated by the Oliver Sagebrushers, Sally Franks,  and Okanagan Archive Trust Society (Brian Wilson) provided  a tempting display. Thank you, members!  Local Oliverites won all three prizes: a wine basket, a sepia-toned aerial photograph of Oliver in the 1930s, and a colourful print of burrowing owls.

Close to thirty artists and artisans demonstrated their craft and sold their works. Photography, painting, spinning and weaving, jewelry making, sewing crafts, preserves, woodworking, and more!

Whom do you recognize at the Faire?
