Oliver’s newly renovated Quail’s Nest Arts Centre hosting open house

Arts centre open house

The Town of Oliver's Quail’s Nest Arts Centre will officially unveil itself on Sunday, with the arts community "ready to party."

Visitors are invited to come by Sunday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to check out art displays, demonstrations, live music, an art market, and a BBQ food concession.

The free event will have information booths set up to meet many of the region’s artists or register for upcoming classes. Art groups will be accepting new students and members.

The Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers Guild and GNR Alpaca Boutique will be demonstrating fibre techniques during the event, alongside other live art shows and events.

Folk-rock duo Badgentina and Bounce Radio 1240 will be onsite. Shutterbugs can capture the moment with the set of colourful quirky quail frames and props.

All artists are members of the Oliver Community Arts Council, the organizers behind this colourful re-opening.

The arts council will be promoting their CreateAbility program, summer’s Music in the Park, and the Fall Art Show and Sale.

The Quail’s Nest Open House welcomes visitors to 5840 Airport Street, Oliver. Public parking is available on the north side of Big Blue.

During the pandemic, the arts council received BC Arts Council funding to bolster arts and culture resilience. Last year, this funding was shared across a dozen community projects. For the Quail’s Nest Open House, the Oliver’s arts council is grateful to the Ross Fitzpatrick Family Fund and the Province of BC.
