Where were you on June 13?

If you were around Parksville you may have noticed some photographers combing the corners of the city.

This was a team lead by The Parksville Qualicum Beach News in an effort to put together A Day in the Life of Parksville. Photographers from the newspaper, as well as professionals around town, split up the city and captured everything going on that day from mini golf, construction and music to bowling, playing at the park and cleaning rooms.

The results will highlighted in an exhibit at the McMillan Arts Centre (the MAC) in Parksville throughout the month of September, and will also be printed in a special section of The Parksville Qualicum Beach News on Thursday. Check it out and you may even spot yourself in a photo.

Along with that exhibition at the MAC, Sybil Andrews Cottage Art Group from Campbell River is presenting Gals in a Mission. Ten women from the group have put together a collection of colourful works of art including some group art featuring recycled and organic materials. Other artists are presenting watercolour and acrylic paintings and fine beadwork. Many three-dimensional pieces were also designed for both outdoor and indoor display.

The opening reception for both shows will take place at the MAC Friday, Sept. 5 from 7- 9 p.m. The exhibitions run from Sept. 2 through the 27. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information visit www.mcmillanartscentre.com or call 250-248-8185.
