Report on the October Show

During the Thanksgiving weekend, members of Art Saturna held their first art show at the Saturna Community Hall, a lovely heritage building located near the ferry landing. Paintings, drawings, photos, textile art, collages and weavings were on display, tempting visitors and islanders who wandered in the Hall during the afternoons of the show.

Thanksgiving Show, Saturna Community Hall, October 8, 2012

The artists are particularly thankful to the Community Club for its generous financing of the new display system. The system worked well, creating islands in the room and featuring colourful displays.

It was fun to see old friends and neighbours, and meet visitors who wandered in the Community Hall to have a look, because what else is there to do while waiting in line for the ferry?

The members of Art Saturna are already working out how to put the display system to good use in the coming months. Stay tuned!
