Reaching out with art in Nelson

A vibrant and unique art show at the Kootenay Bakery Café during the month of October.

The Nelson CARES Society’s supported employment program and Community Living BC are pleased to present Community Living Month with a vibrant and unique art show at the Kootenay Bakery Café during the month of October.

Come by the café and see paintings, photography, poetry and jewelry, featuring artists from Kootenay Society for Community Living’s Bigby Place, the Clubhouse and Nelson CARES Society.

The art opening reception is on October 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. There will be cake, light refreshments, give-a-ways and an opportunity to meeting the diverse group of artists. This is a no cost event and everyone is welcome.

“Community Living Month is a wonderful opportunity for Nelson to share in the talents and contributions of all our community members,” said Alison Roy, supported employment program manager.

“Each year we explore a new avenue for celebrating community living and are very excited to offer an art show to the community this year.  Our artists are very proud of their work and creativity.”

Community Living BC is a provincial agency that supports individuals with disabilities and their families. October is Community Living Month. Events are held all over the province.
