The Elbow Art Society starts meeting in January with nine members who live along Highway 19, from Central Butte to Loreburn.
“We have been a group for twenty-five years, gathering in Elbow. We started out as a group of watercolorists, but have evolved to include oil and acrylics as well as wool felting works and numerous other techniques.”
“We meet upstairs in the Town of Elbow village office on Mondays excluding holiday weekends. Our gallery and work space are open to the public on Saturdays in the summer months, from June to August, displaying original works from current members, Audrey King, Viv Brown, Norma Johnson, Marlo Kearley, Dawn MacTavish, Denise Stewart, Bonita Tucker, Deb Oram and Georgia Horsley. As a group, we share, critique, demonstrate, and supply materials as needed. We also encourage new artists to join or visit our group.”
“In the past we have hosted wine and cheese events. Last year we took part in the River and Rail ArtVenture, hosting approximately 200 visitors.
Elbow has always been a great supporter of our group and we in turn try to donate to charity fundraisers in Elbow and surrounding communities, including The Boys and Girls club, Palliative care housing, and hospital fund raisers.
Come visit us and enjoy the art work but also take the time to enjoy all that Elbow has to offer. Looking forward to meeting you!”
