Submitted by the Arts Council-Are you inspired by the incredible art at this year’s All-Islands Art Show? If so, come share your thoughts and feelings on closing night as the Arts Council celebrates text-based art along with the visual.We’d love to hear from you in song, poems, dramatic monologues, essays, stories, rap, or any other form of word-based art you can come up with. Your words can be inspired by specific pieces, relate to art in general, delve into the art show’s theme, “From There to Here,” or just be an inspiration on its own. Join us at 7 pm on March 13 at the Haida Gwaii Museum for this exciting evening of words. All are welcome and if you can, please bring an appetizer or dessert to share. This is your last chance to see this year’s amazing display of island artists too. Those who want to find out more can contact Heather at 559-0093.
