A Faire day

The Spring Arts Faire returns for a third year of ushering in the colour and creativity of spring. The Oliver Community Arts Council hosts this celebration of all things artistic on Saturday April 5 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Oliver Community Centre on Park Drive. Sales, demonstrations and displays will fill the hall. Admission is FREE but donations are always welcome in support of the arts council. Door prizes will be sure to tempt you, so your visit is worth it from the moment you arrive.

Among the vendors are a cross-section of many arts media: wood carving, etched glassware, leather work, gourd art, painting, photography, jewelry, paper crafts, fabric arts, and even the culinary arts with some truly delightful home preserves. In addition, the arts council’s friendly greeters host their own booth to showcase many upcoming arts events in Oliver. They will also promote the more than thirty member groups and businesses that make up the arts and culture sector in Oliver. Find out what’s happening in the arts!

A lunch menu is catered by the Oliver Bakery all day – aren’t they yummy? — so relax and enjoy some refreshments while you shop. Stop by with family or make it your gathering place for friends. Last year the hall had a warm, energetic vibe all day, and we hope to recreate that fresh spring feeling this year.

The Faire promises to be a great place to pick up some great décor items and gifts for friends and family. Art is all about the story. When you’re asked “Where did you find this piece of artwork?” how nice to be able to say “Well, I met this local artist at the Faire, and…. “ Give the gift that says “Made right here at home”.Spring Art Faire 2014 Poster sm
