What’s been happening
There was an enthusiastic and appreciative audience for the opening of two exhibitions, Venus Spreads Her Wings by Catherine Stewart and Sway by Katherine Pickering. Photos clockwise from top left: Katherine Pickering (right) talks about her installation, Sway. Catherine Stewart (left) discusses the details of her work, Venus Spreads Her Wings.

Monday Night at the Movies
Monday Night at the Movies has been revived and the community response shows this was a popular decision. The location is now at the Old Theatre (formerly the Castle Theatre) on Columbia Avenue. The opening film was Maudie, the story of Canadian folk icon Maude Lewis. Directed by Aisling Walsh, the film proved to be a fitting opening for the series, with beautiful cinematography, a strong script by Sherry White and compelling performances by Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. Please join us at the next film, Their Finest.

Thank you to Kootenay Market for supplying the vegetable platter for the evening, too. It was a good opportunity to catch up with our members and hear your interests and ideas.
