Dear Editor,

On behalf of the board of directors of the Nicola Valley Community Arts Council and the 30th Anniversary Planning Committee, I would like to say thank you to the community for coming out in such great numbers to celebrate on Friday, April 26 at the Civic Centre. We could not have imagined a better turn out and party! We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the wonderful performances, the stunning artwork, the scrumptious appetizers by Dorothy Molnar and Brambles Bakery and Cafe, the fabulous cupcakes by Michelle Shaw, and the donated Starbucks coffee. We thank you all for making it a night to remember!

The scrapbooks, now updated to 2012, are available for perusal at the Courthouse Gallery.

Please note that the Black and White Art Show will be moving to the Courthouse Art Gallery and there will be an opening on May 2. The gallery is open Thursdays from 4-8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from noon-6pm.

While you’re at the art gallery, please consider taking out a membership in the NVCAC to help support the arts council’s programs that so enhance the lives of the people of the Nicola Valley. After all, as Picasso said, “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
