Come celebrate art and history at the Spring Family Fair at Touchstones Nelson on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.

Inspired by the current youth art exhibition, this year’s Family Fair will explore art-making techniques featured in the youth show including print-making, pointillism, and watercolour painting. As always, the permanent museum will be open as well as both temporary exhibitions, Unfamiliar Selves and Youth Art 2016.

The event is by donation, and is sponsored by the volunteers of Touchstones Nelson. Half of the donations will go to support the Nelson and District Youth Centre’s art program. For more information call Touchstones Nelson at 250-352-9813.
