Campbell River Garden Tour

July 6 and 7 2019

What a wonderful weekend! 291 tickets were sold. It was a record. The gardens were beautiful, the visitors appreciative, and the 25+ artists and musicians amazing. This was a collaborative event with POTA partnering with the CR Garden Club and the City of CR as hosts. Just 2 years to wait for the next one.

River City Arts Festival

July 20 2019

An Art Zentangle experience with Barb Round and Penny Gosselin was sponsored by POTA and CR Arts Council.

Zentangle creates amazing art by drawing patterns called tangles, a method designed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. All you have to be able to do is to make elemental strokes, and a world of patterns begins to unfold as you are guided through a relaxing (thus the zen), fun, and easy method. It’s magical!
