A wonderfully Artistic Lumby Days 

After being on hold for the past few years Lumby Days was back as a resounding success. MAC started Friday evening with the setting up of the Hometown Pride Photography contest, as well as Home is Where the Heart is Art Show. 

The amazing vibrant showcase continued into Saturday with a day full of Artistic Hands On events such as: Raku with Larry MacGregor and Monica Brown; demonstrations and showcases from the Monashee Spinners and Weavers, The Vernon Carvers, Monashee Quilters Circle and Michelle Goode from Basket Case Studios. 

On Sunday MAC was excited to announce the winners of this year’s Photography contest and Art show including the People’s Choice where over 670 people put in their ballots for each!

Happening Now – Hometown Pride Art Show

Join us as we celebrate Hometown Pride in this wonderful collection by Local Artists from our amazing community.  For some people Lumby and its amazing surrounding area, has been home since they were born and for some it became home after a move.  This collection of Art captures all the elements that make up the places we call Home.

Call for Artists;

Join us in the exploration of small works of art staring a favorite the Artist Trading Card!

Started in 1997 by Swiss artist M. Vanci Stirnemann the ATC project as it is often called builds on different traditions. Miniature art has been in existence for centuries tracing its heritage back to the illustrated manuscripts of scribes in the Far East and Europe prior to the 15th century.

Everyone can make Artist Trading Cards! It’s a great way to work on developing your art skills. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches and they are to be traded only, as such MAC will be hosting their 1st trading event at the end of the show.

Other small works of art will be on display and sale as well with a maximum size of 8″x8″ or perhaps you create other forms of miniature art. We want to see it!

Join us for this exciting new show!
