Young talent on display at Pynelogs

The DTSS: REACH art show at Pynelogs is right around the corner!

Our valley is home to numerous, incredibly talented young people, and from May 31 to June 12, Pynelogs Cultural Centre will be featuring two exciting shows where this talent will have the opportunity to be showcased.  This will be the seventh time the REACH Art Show will take place and feature artwork from students from the David Thompson Secondary School Art (DTSS) Program.

The REACH show will be featured along with the Royal Canadian Legion National Poppy Poster and Literary Contest’s winners.

The REACH Art Show features works from students grade eight to 12 and will include a variety of artistic domains such as pottery, sculpture, painting, 2-D and 3-D works, photography, and perhaps even film.  The show is organized by Maggie Milligen who instructs art at DTSS and says she loves to see student work exhibited.  This show will be an excellent opportunity for that, and an exciting experience for these artists of the next generation.  The REACH contest is jointly staged with a creative contest and includes an Open Mic night and written works.  Prizes will be awarded for the Creative Contest at 7:30 p.m. at Pynelogs on June 1st.  This show is a fantastic opportunity for the public to show their support for young local talent.

The Royal Canadian Legion National Poppy Poster and Literary Contest will be displaying its winners from the intermediate, junior, and primary levels in poster and literary categories, which will equal about 42 entries on display.  This display will not only feature some talented and well-deserved winners, but the focus is one that is close to the hearts of all of us.  Howie Williams, who after 36 years in the military has deemed himself “Mr. Poppy”, is always impressed by how the teachers help get the students involved in the contest.  This is another display that is an opportunity to support our local youth, but also to do some remembering.

The opening night for this event will be held on June 1 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. down at Pynelogs and promises to be a great time for the featured students, their families, and anyone else who wants to come out and experience some remarkable artwork.  A huge thank you goes out to the sponsors of the REACH show; Mercer & Co. and Panorama Mountain Village!  Please phone Pynelogs for any additional information (250-342-4423).
