OCTOBER:  Artist of Month Dalene de Bruyn

After a successful Showcase in September, it’s time to keep up the momentum of support of local creative  with another exciting display of original artworks by artist Dalene deBruyn. She is new to Listowel and North Perth and welcomed the opportunity to become involved with the North Perth Arts community and the exhibition of her art through the support of the Listowel branch of the North Perth Public Library.

It’s one thing to view the art, it’s even more interesting to meet the artist and share your thoughts with them. To that end there will be a Meet the Artist reception on Monday Oct 15th, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm  at the library. Fellow artists as well as the general public are all invited to attend. See you there.
