Local artists will mark history of their own when a group of talent dedicates a new gallery space this Saturday, Aug. 3.

Faron Reay and her daughter Jorja welcome all to see the Riverside Artists Gallery at Kettle River Woodcraft in Rock Creek.

Local artists will mark history of their own when a group of talent dedicates a new gallery space this Saturday, Aug. 3.

The Riverside Artists is a group of talented individuals working in various mediums who have banded together to share their passion for the art with the community. Saturday morning the group will dedicate its new space, provided by Kettle River Woodcraft.

As well, the group has painted a number of fish cutouts and these will be displayed on easels in businesses in downtown Rock Creek. The fish advertise the Art Walk and for the donation of a Toonie, patrons will get a chance to win one of the two fish displayed at that location. Proceeds go to support the workshops the group puts on.

The drawing for the fish will be at the Rock Creek Market on Aug. 3 at 1 p.m.

Members of the Riverside Artists will also be doing workshops for children during the day. The location was still to be determined at press time. For more information contact Ann Rexin at 250-446-2409.

Some local businesses have generously offered the space to work during the day so that shoppers might enjoy their talents.
