The members of the Evergreen Art Group are extending an open invitation to everyone to come to their first Mixed Media Art Show and Sale.

The Art Group has been painting all summer long, so there will be lots of variety to browse through and choose from.

Chris Aldred from the group says, “Come along and have a look at our work, maybe there will be something to catch your eye.  We’d love to meet you.”

If you need time to ponder your selections and have a nice afternoon out, the lounge will also be open with coffee and goodies from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

It happens this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Rotary Hall of the Florence Filberg Centre in downtown Courtenay.  If you are curious about the Evergreen Art Group, they meet every Thursday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the craft room at the centre to socialize and paint.

There are generally 10 to 12 artists at any one session employing a variety of techniques and diverse styles. Everyone just does their own thing, no tuition but lots of talent and experience to draw upon.  They also have quite an extensive library of art instruction books to reference.

Evergreen membership is required to join. For details, contact 250-338-1000.
