A covey of local artists and art-lovers are arranging to carpool and descend on Oliver’s sister city, Chelan, Washington. There is room for more participants, so please join the celebration of Art Without Borders on the weekend of Friday May 16th – Saturday, May 17th. Artists from all media (visual, performance, literary, etc) are invited to register in this friendly cross-border exchange.
The eclectic group plans to travel 100 miles south of the border down Hwy 97 to the beautiful Lake Chelan. Activities are scheduled for Friday afternoon and evening, including a lunch, a walking tour of Chelan’s murals and sculptures, and an evening get-together. There will be time for personal relaxation of your choice. On Saturday, there are studio tours planned with a return to Oliver in the afternoon.
To register and for more information, contact the local rep listed on the poster or email the OliverCAC @ gmail.com
All participants must arrange their own accommodation. NOTE: Group accommodation has now changed! Reservations at Campbell’s Lake Chelan Resort are suggested, to take advantage of group booking rates. A limited number of rooms (10) are available. Travellers must confirm their reservation by March 10 to hold the discount rate. (Traditional 2 queen room $174 or a deluxe 2 queen room $204). Remember to mention you are from Oliver, BC and are part of the sister-city artists’ group. Of course, participants are at liberty to make personal arrangements for other hotel accommodation or RV sites at their leisure after that date.
Please register locally first, then book your overnight stay at
