Harps and art at the MAC Dec. 17

Winter Wonderland exhibit and Patt Scrivener's Christmas from the Harp

The McMillan Arts Centre (the MAC) is playing host to an afternoon fundraising event for The Oceanside Community Arts Council on Dec. 17 and you’re invited.

Patt Scrivener’s Christmas from the Harp concert is the main attraction of the day, and there will also be some complimentary Christmas refreshments.

The MAC’s galleries will also be open for visitors to browse their Winter Wonderland exhibit. This features artistic inspirations of winter by more than 30 members of the OCAC.  There are painters, photographers and potters on display.

Work by stained-glass artist Robert Lineham will be there as well, and can be found in the windows of the Oceanside Gallery. According to a news release from the MAC, Lineham is self-taught and has been doing glass work for thirty years. He has recently done a series of Celtic Knots and finds working with glass to be satisfying and challenging at the same time.

“I like to design windows with enough colour to be visually attractive both in the day and backlit from an outside window, while still being visually pleasing when viewed at night from the inside,” he said.

The fundraising event will be Wednesday, Dec. 17 from 1:30–3:30 p.m. and admission is by $5 minimum donation at the door.

The Winter Wonderland exhibit will continue until Dec. 21.
