Nelson and District Arts Council hosts toonie tour

The showing of Robinson’s prints will take place on Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, February 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at 511 Nelson Ave

The Nelson and District Arts Council is pleased to launch their “Toonie Tours” series with an exhibition of the relief prints of Cliff Robinson (1916 to 1992).

A student of Walter Phillips and A.C. Leighton, Robinson was to become University of BC’s first travelling instructor of art and design in 1949. In that capacity he taught some summer classes at Notre Dame University College in Nelson. By the mid 1950s, Robinson served as first director of CBC TV Vancouver.

Although working in a variety of mediums, Cliff Robinson is best known for his relief prints.

The showing of Robinson’s prints and print blocks will take place on Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, February 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at 511 Nelson Avenue (look for the big brown house).

Admission is $2, with proceeds going to support the projects of the Nelson and District Arts Council.
