The Hornby Island Arts Council is very excited to be presenting a series of outdoor performances this summer. We will be launching the series with performances from three talented Hornby singer songwriters on Friday June 28th from 7-9pm.
First up will be Jodi Laine, who has been rocking Hornby stages for 6 years with her powerful voice, next on stage will be Bailey Gordon who mixes confessional spoken word with songs. Rounding out the evening will be a set of whimsical and well-crafted songs from recording artist Kim McMechan.
This is a free, rain or shine event. A concession will be open as will the Gallery. Please bring a chair or blanket as we have limited seating.
Our third opening of the season is on Friday June 21st from 7-9pm. Ted Goodden’s intuitive clay forms speak the visceral language of the unconscious. How does each form affect your body? Amanda Hale’s pieces are combined photo and text from her travels to Cuba and Guatemala. Come experience the world Amanda travels to, the political environments of Cuba and Guatemala, and mostly, the humanity. Proceeds from Amanda’s photographs go to Cuban and Guatemalan families.
Come enjoy our second show of the season: Jill Royall’s “Of Things Past,” a collection of abstract paintings interspersed with a few figurative pieces, all with themes of nostalgia and honouring the sacred places and times of our lives. The show opened on Friday June 7th and will run until Sunday June 16th. Open hours are Wednesday through Sunday 11am-3pm. Come on by to enjoy this rich, colourful collection as well as our Backroom Gallery showcasing pieces from all our summer 2013 artists. Enjoy!
