Oct 3: 7:00 pm. What can a long lost environmental project from the 1970s in Prince Edward Island teach us about living responsibly and sustainably in the 21st century? The answer is a great deal. Attend this exhibition tour and open discussion of the architectural, technological, social and cultural legacy of the PEI Ark. Event is free and open to the public.
Thursday night art class: Thursday, 7:00- 9:00 pm. All skill levels are welcome, ages 16+. Cost is $8 for members, $15 per session for non-members; materials are included. Please register by calling 458-2028.
Oct 3: Lawrence Peters will explore the many worlds of James Wilson Morrice. Morrice enjoyed the life of a “flaneur”, or an observer of the greatest flowering of modern art in France: impressionism. Be inspired by Morrice’s use and appreciation of the café as artistic scene, as you create your own pochades of café scenes at the gallery.
