Art pops up at Lumby and Cherryville libraries

Books are not the only things to check out when entering the Lumby and Cherryville libraries this month.

Books are not the only things to check out when entering the Lumby and Cherryville libraries this month.

Both branches of the Okanagan Regional Library are featuring the works of local artists during November.

Trees and flowers have popped up inside the Lumby library with an exhibition by local artist Kathy Munts, who features nature in many of her creations.

“My love for art is taking me on an exciting journey of discovery,” said Munts. “Now I am fascinated with acrylic and ink, on their own, and mixed with watercolour and pencil, creating multiple layers of texture and colour.”

The Lumby library is also highlighting the tree theme during a holiday-inspired craft session, making environmentally-friendly Christmas trees using recycled magazines. The session takes place Saturday, Nov. 7 from noon to 2 p.m. All supplies will be provided and registration is required as the craft can only accommodate 10 people.

Further east on Highway 6, the Cherryville Artisans Association is showcasing the work of six local artists at the Cherryville library.

“The library is a great place to gather for such an event,” said Helen Kovacs, with the Cherryville Artisans Association. “The artists provide artwork and the library will bring in different books on each subject, helping us fulfill our mandate to educate our community.”

The artisans’ exhibition kicks off Wednesday, Nov. 4 with an opening reception at 6:30 p.m.

Artists Laurel Fredin (pottery), Marie-France Ladouceur (photography), Patti Shonek (pottery and felting), Satish Shonek (pottery masks), Nancy Vince (drawing and prints), and Judy Wasyleshko (photography) will be in attendance to answer questions and show their techniques.

All are invited to this free opening and refreshments will be served.

The Cherryville Artisans Association display will be on until May, 2016.
