Arts Jam! on tour to quilters Monday March 12

Oliver Community Arts Council members are invited to a special edition of the monthly Arts Jam! gathering of the membership. This month Arts Jam! goes on tour to visit one of the arts council’s member groups on their own “turf”. The event is hosted by the Double O Quilters on Monday 12th at 9:30 a.m. at the Oliver Community Centre hall.

Members will be treated to a special presentation of Double O talent, listen to some news from the quilters, and have a chance to share news from the various local arts groups. Goodies and beverages are graciously provided by the quilters guild.

The arts council will announce many of its own spring activities, including the Spring Arts Faire,  Arts and Culture Week events, and Showcase of Talent, in addition to a short summary of their recent AGM, and information on funding to arts groups.

A similar “tour” in the spring of 2011 (to the spinners and weavers) proved so popular that the council thought the venture worth repeating. Watch for more “Arts Jams on Tour” in the future, and find out about our members’s talents!

Arts Jam! usually occurs on the fourth Monday of every month at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre. This special tour replaces the usual fourth Monday gathering for March. The following Arts Jam will be Monday April 23 at 9:30 a.m. at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre.
