Monashee Arts Council: There’s much to share during the month of May!

Getting Ready for our Annual Festival of the Arts!

We are thrilled to announce that we will once again be holding our Community Photography Contest at Lumby Days.  The interest and participation in this fun event is always impressive.  Remember, we have both Youth & Adult sections in all our categories: People, Landscape/Scenery, Abstract/Other, Animals/Pets, and Macro.  You can find the guidelines and application form on our website or in the office.  The Photography Contest is open to all residents of Lumby, Lavington, Areas D & E, and to current Monashee Arts Council members.

This Year at Lumby Days we are hosting TWO Art Shows!!!
Our Annual Critiqued Art Show – any medium, any theme is welcome!  There is a display fee and a maximum of 3 entries per artist.  Find the guidelines & submission form on our website or stop by the office to pick one up in person.

New this Year! Our themed art show:
What Did Your Ancestors Do…?
This new art show is a Juried exhibition and we invite you to be creative with your submissions, not only what medium you choose, but also how you choose to represent your ancestry. You may or may not know what your bloodline did in the past but don’t let that stop your creative expression!  We do require a brief artist’s statement on your piece outlining why you chose to represent your family the way you did in your artwork. Again, there will be a maximum of 3 pieces per artist and there is a display fee for each artwork. There will be a monetary prize in this show for Best in Theme.  Again, all the info can be found on our website ( and in the office which is located within The Village Gallery at 1975 Vernon Street in Lumby, BC (Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm).

Finally, we have a Call for Volunteers!
As you can imagine, there is a lot involved in putting together our Annual Festival of the Arts at Lumby Days each year.  We are always very appreciative of our amazing crew of volunteers who step up in a variety of way before, during and after the event.  This year, we are putting out a special call for a volunteer to help us with set up on Friday, June 7th.  We are looking for someone strong, who can assist with setting up the display boards and tables in our venue.  Please contact Jennifer at: or call 778-473-3029.  We really appreciate it!
