In is third year of :”Art On Site Interchange”, from January to March, a group met weekly at the Vancouver Island Regional Library North, Nanaimo Branch instead of painting in different locations each week.
The culmination of this group is an exhibition in the library of some of the work started and/or completed during the past 13 weeks. There are eight artists contributing to the exhibition showing from April 5 – April 19.
The interest developed in this drop in art group resulted in the creation of a new group in the downtown library branch starting on Wed. April 20. It also caught the attention of a Toronto librarian and an artist in Calgary, who hope to get a group started in those cities.
