Three-dimensional exhibit at the MAC in Parksville

The MAC will be filled with original, unique and masterfully-crafted three-dimensional art created from fibre, wood and stone

The McMillan Arts Centre’s Invitational December Exhibit and Sale will feature many of the mid-Island’s best three-dimensional artists.

All three galleries at the MAC will be filled with original, unique and masterfully-crafted three-dimensional art created from fibre, wood and stone.

The work of three Island jewelry makers will also be featured, adding a metal component to the 3D art.

The artists who were invited to participate live and work in Qualicum Beach, Parksville, Gabriola and Denman islands and are all well-known for excellence at their craft.

The Island artists featured are Mike Rebar and Steven Cole (stone sculptors); Lucinda Hepting, Ionne McCauley, Margie Preninger, Pat Collins, Pam Vest and Dante Ambriel (fibre arts);  Tashi Draper, Q’waya Sam and Susan White (jewelery); and Richard Sandstrom and Bill Thomson (woodwork).

The exhibit and sale will run from Nov. 29 through Dec. 22.

An opening reception will be held at the MAC on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 1-3 p.m. There will be a chance to meet and speak with the artists.
