The multimedia collective has conquered another peak with their interpretation of Lawren Harris’ “Mount Lefroy”. The RipOff Artists reached their first summit after a week of intense creation, demonstration and exhibit during Summer at the Quail’s Nest. They reached another pinnacle with a feature on CHBC TV news. They attracted attention during their guest exhibit at the Oliver Community Arts Council’s Fall Art Show and Sale on the weekend of October 2 -3 . Now the RipOff Artists have set their flag atop Handworks Gallery for their latest show:Handworks Gallery presents The RipOff Artists: Lawren Harris’ Mount LeFroy Opening Reception Wednesday October 6 2 – 4 p.m. Refreshments ~ Door Prize Continuing: October 5 – 29 9:30 – 5:00 Monday to Friday 10:00 – 4:00 Saturday Handworks Gallery 35648 – 97 St. Oliver 250-498-6388
