  • (External Event) Call for Artists for the Powell River Art Chair Auction

The Friends of the Library and Sunshine Gogos (on behalf of The Stephen Lewis Foundation) are organizing the first fabulous Art Chair Auction in Powell River this August 2017. We anticipate that it will be a great fundraiser and an amazing showcase for our local artists. Last spring we started gathering wooden chairs, we now have 60 in total. They have been sanded, received 2 coats of primer and are ready to be transformed into works of art! We would love to hear from members of the art community in Powell River. At the end of February, we will be showcasing the 60 chairs at the pop up library above the site of the new library and will be inviting artists to choose the chair they will turn into their art chair.  For further information and to add your name to the growing list of artists involved in this project, please contact either Brownie at ( 414-0826) or Maureen at (485-6202). To view some of the amazing art chairs go on line and check out Hornby Island Chair Auction.

  • Hildegard Westercamp – Composer, radio artist and sound ecologist.  She will be presenting a  soundscape workshop and lecture – Spring of 2017. more details to be posted soon.
