Eagle Valley Brush and palette club planning 33rd Annual Arts and Crafts Show

New play and Canada Day entertainment this week in On The Arts.

This is the 33rd  year that the Eagle Valley Brush and Palette Club will be presenting their Annual Arts and Craft Show.

In the last number of years the show has been growing in size – not only in the number of art pieces, but also in the number of people attending. And it is certainly worthwhile.

Are you new in town? You live here and have never taken the time to go to one of these shows? This year would be a great time to visit.

I can highly recommend it.

The show is held at the Red Barn Arts Centre on Riverside Avenue.

Meet the Artist is Thursday, June 28 at 7 p.m. From June 29 until July 2, the exhibit is open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.




There will be more activity at the Red Barn Arts Centre and the Malakwa Community Centre with the play, Murder Over A Love Song, sponsored by the Monashee Mountain Arts Society.

The story is about a crime family going through issues of theft and betrayal.

The play will run as a dinner theatre at the Malakwa Community Centre on June 16 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets $15. Call 250-836-4700 for details.

In Sicamous, the play runs at the Red Barn, June 21 to 23, at 8 p.m., doors open 7:30.

On Sunday, June 24 there’s a showing at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1:30. Tickets $10, $7 for seniors and students, and are available at TRU Value Hardware.



Family fun

The Eagle Valley Arts Council will be sponsoring the entertainment at the Lions Breakfast on July 1 at the Red Barn Arts Centre parking lot. Children’s entertainer Mat Duffus will be performing from 8 to 11.

Duffus impressed young and old last year with his antics, and he is looking forward to entertaining the young ones again.

There will also be clowns to help entertain the children (and the young at heart).

Also sponsored by the Eagle Valley Arts Council is Music on the Water with the band Scarecrow on July 1. Music starts at 7 p.m., and plays until the fireworks start.

The barge is donated by Mike Olde every year.  Scarecrow, who will be on the barge  floating in front of the beach park, plays music from the 50s to the present and are always a big hit with the audience. Let’s hope the weather co-operates again.

At dusk there will be the fabulous – and now famous all around B.C. –  Sicamous’ Light up the Lake fireworks show. The fireworks, together with all the lights of the boats on the lake, is a wondrous sight.



Healing music

It’s long been known that listening to music can ease stress, but scientists are discovering that is has a powerful effect on pain, immunity and even recovery from heart attacks.

It has also been shown that music has a healthy effect on blood vessel function.

If you wonder what form of art to pursue, trust that you will be attracted to what will give you satisfaction.
