The first celebration of the ‘Anmore Arts in the Garden, event will be held at Roxanne’s house, 1020 Sugar Mountain Way, in Anmore BC, on Saturday August 21st between 2-5pm.  The event will feature internationally renowned high realist painter Daniel Taylor and local Arts based advocate for Mental Health J Peachy, both of whom are based in Anmore.  In addition, there will be other emerging and established artists who will be participating including Monika Blichar, Vicky Rae, Joe Sala and Lori Motokado.  The stroll through the Gardens will be enhanced by live musical performance by local musicians David Blair and Alexander Keurvorst.

“Anmore is a bit of a landlocked island culturally, and by having great local talent come to our beautiful neighbourhood is really special. This arts event is different than others out there as it reflects the values of our village lifestyle” states J Peachy event organizer.

In the spirit of grass-roots festivals like Woodstock, Under the Volcano and the Vancouver Folk Festival; the Anmore Arts Festival will be held at Roxanne’s house from the 1980’s movie ‘Roxanne’ starring Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah.  This joyful event will celebrate the arts through live painting, music, poetry and even an elegant lemonade stand.

Admission is by donation.  There will be door prizes, a silent auction and original Art will be for sale.  Partial proceeds will go towards the African Conservation Foundation, in support of preservation for the Cross River Gorillas as well as Gallery Gachet a mental health advocacy Gallery.

The artists thank the Anmore Alternative News for hosting and making this event possible.
