Poster Contest Winner Announced

Evie New (right) accepts her gift basket from Sally Franks after winning the poster contest for the Fall Art Show and Sale.  The contest requested submissions with the theme: “Those Were the Days”. Her sepia-toned entry featured a vintage car under the overhanging rock at Vaseux Lake.  Her artwork will be used on posters and other advertising to promote the show and sale, which will be held Saturday October 2 – Sunday October 3 at the Oliver Community Centre. 

Artist entry forms are now available for the Fall Art Show and Sale. The theme suggested for submitted works is “Those Were the Days”. The weekend event will also feature a display by the Oliver and District Historical Society (an OCAC member group), and a silent auction featuring collectible and antique items.

Please pick up your entry form by visiting Handworks Gallery on Oliver Main Street or by contacting the Oliver Community Arts Council at
