Sidney Fine Art Show is on

Town meets with CACSP, Art Show committee president, to find solution.

The Sidney Fine Art Show is back on the calendar at the Mary Winspear Centre in the fall.

The Sidney Fine Art Show is back and will continue for years to come.

On March 9, Sidney Town Councillor and arts liaison for the Town of Sidney, Barbara Fallot, and Chief Administrative Officer Randy Humble facilitated a meeting with President of the Community Arts Council, Danny Daniels and Diane Thorp of the Sidney Fine Art Show Committee.

The results of the meeting were positive and both parties agreed to continue on with the Fine Art Show.

“Clearly we want to have this show on and we need to go forward, and so in terms of sorting a framework for putting on the show this year and continuing forward, we were able to come to agreement on that so everything is moving forward for October,” Daniels told the PNR.

“I think its another one of the great public events that we put on that is a bonus for our residents as well as drawing visitors to the area,” said Fallot.

Executive Director of the Mary Winspear Centre, Brad Edgett, said from his perspective they are going to host another wonderful art show this year.

“I understand that both sides are agreeing to put on a wonderful show and Mary Winspear is here to help in any way possible,” he said.

Edgett added the show is an amazing event for the Peninsula, bringing together much talent.

“The Sidney Fine Art show is an amazing show which brings together incredible talented artists and gives an opportunity for people on the Peninsula to see amazing artwork,” he said. “It’s constantly growing, it’s constantly evolving and I think for a small community, the number of incredible artists is rather outstanding.”

A Community Arts Council board meeting was held March 17 to discuss the show, along with other upcoming events.

Daniels said CACSP is preparing for their spring festival at the end of May and June along with a number of other events as well.

“Things are all moving forward in the way that we hoped they would.”
