Yesterday a number of BLPG members were at the Opening Ceremonies of Art Crawl 2019 at the Parkside Art Gallery in 100 Mile House.
The Gallery itself is well worth a visit, of course, but after the ceremony we visited a number of the 25 businesses in 100 Mile House which are displaying the works of some of the 26 local artists taking part in Art Crawl 2019.
We dropped in at four of the venues: Regency Chrysler where photographic works by Monika Patterson are on show; Cariboo Floor Design featuring beautiful and interesting creations by Barb McClusky; More Than Wood Art Gallery which has pieces by many artists; and Sunshine Ford which contains many pieces created by the South Cariboo Weavers, Spinners & Fibre Artists Guild.
Then it was off to the Stemete7uw’i Friendship Centre for a bowl of delicious venison stew and bannock, accompanied by a welcome dance performed by a pair of traditionally dressed dancers one of whom was the cutest three(?) year old you’ll ever see (she danced to her own beat)!
I definitely recommend you take advantage of this unique event, lasting just until July 1. Oh, by the way, each venue has a free raffle for a basket of goodies! And also, of course, don’t forget to drop into Cariboo Geographic Services to see our BLPG photographic display.
