The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre is having an open house on Friday, Dec. 16  from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

It’s the closing reception for the arts centre’s Winter in Art in exhibition. TOSH is located at 122 W. Fern Rd. in Qualicum Beach.

Winter in Art includes Santa Claus and Father Christmas portraits by Janice Erwin, winter landscapes by Dawne Brandel, Wreaths for Charity by the Mid Island Floral Art Club and Christmas stockings, some of which were created by members of the Mid Island Surface Design Group.

TOSH executive director Corinne James previously told The NEWS that this final exhibition of the year is a way to give back to the community.

Both the Wreaths for Charity and the stockings are part of a silent auction with proceeds going to the local food bank. Bidding for the wreaths and the stockings ends at 3 p.m. on Friday.

People are invited to TOSH for “a cup of good cheer, a sweet treat or two and an old school house filled with artists and their creations.”
