There are artists lurking (happily) at Davis Creek campsite this summer.

To help celebrate BC Parks’ 100th anniversary, Lardeau Valley Opportunity Links Society (or LINKS) is offering a project which involves professional artists from the Lardeau Valley working at Davis Creek campsite in Lardeau each Sunday from 1 and 6 p.m.

Form now until August 21 five different artists will be there, sharing their ideas and tips on creating their particular types of artwork.

There are also art materials on offer for campers and visitors who would like to explore their own creative nature and investigate the many ways that art and nature intersect in a beautiful location. Jim Lawrence (photographer), Susan VanRooy (journaling), Cathy Aitken (photography), Maggie Oliver (pencil sketches and oil paintings) and Carol Ross (mixed media, painting) will each be at the park for two Sundays.

Come along for a  visit and help celebrate the longevity in our BC Parks.

Funding support comes from BC Parks, Assembly of BC Arts Councils, and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.
