Clinton Art and Cultural Society Show and Sale successful

Proceeds of silent auction, donation jar given to CFEC in 100 Mile House

The Clinton Art and Cultural Society Art Show and Sale at the Clinton Memorial Hall on Oct. 14-16 was a great success.

Artists who are members of the society and several non-members displayed their work over the three days to a public both local and from far away.

The proceeds from the silent auction and donation jar have been tallied, and a cheque for $400 is being delivered to the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) in 100 Mile House.

All donations at the Show and Sale are returned to the community, charities doing good work for the less fortunate.

People who contribute to the silent auction in terms of donations and businesses giving gift certificates are helping our local charities.

Keep the Clinton Art and Cultural Society in mind if you have something of value you would like to donate to this cause.

The winner of the “Best in Show” voting was Sandi Burrage’s oil painting entitled Lights.

The winner of the “Best in Theme” voting was Wayne Larsen’s watercolour entitled Anywhere Creek.

The dates of the next show and sale, to be held in 2017, are still under discussion, and will be announced as soon as possible.

Artists both local and remote are encouraged to join as members of the Clinton Art and Cultural Society, and show and sell their artwork at the society’s shows, and help the society promote the Arts in this region.
