ArtSpring invites you to their 3rd annual Celebrate the Arts: Art Making by the Salt Spring Artist Community, in collaboration with Salt Spring Arts Council’s 2019 Easter Art Tour.

Saturday, April 20
10:00am – 4:00pm Display and Creation (ArtSpring Gallery and Lobby)

5:00pm – 6:00pm Mash-up Performance (ArtSpring Theatre) An alchemy of performances by visual and performing artists who have come together to experiment and create something new. These works are not necessarily polished but allow the viewer and performers to enter into new territories with the seeds of a concept and the excitement of the unknown. Time limit of 3-7 minutes per performance.

The activities for children will include:
Johanna Hoskins with:
Screen printing, block printing and Easter egg dying.

Sara Ratner with:
Natural printing (eco-printing) involving plant material on cotton fabric.

Patrick McCallum:
Mural painting

Julianna Slomka

Adult activities include:

Creation of 6’X4’ mandala from material found in nature
Natural printing (eco-printing) involving plant material on cotton fabric (Sara Ratner)

We will also have a number of performers creating music in the gallery space or in the lobby.

We celebrate any creative endeavour. We celebrate our artistic community.
