Happening Now!

People, Plants, and Pollinators 

The Monashee Arts Council (MAC) is currently hosting their new show at the Village Gallery, which underlines the relationship of art and nature.

Local Artists have come together to illustrate how native and non-native plants in bloom carry on the natural cycle of attracting pollinators such as bees, flies, wasps, beetles, moths, hummingbirds, and butterflies for mutual benefit. This important process is important to the natural cycle including that which allows humans to produce many of the foods commonly found on our own tables, what a wonderful way to give thanks to these important creatures.

The show will be running from July 2nd to July 31st the Village Gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, at 1975 Vernon St. (Hwy.6).
