elebrate National Aboriginal History Month at Fraser Valley Regional Library this June. Join us as we welcome Aboriginal Artists in Residence – Darlene Allison and Jay Havens.
The artists will visit various FVRL locations to showcase their craft, chat with the public, and present programs to registered groups of all ages!
A member of the Sandy Bay Ojibway First Nation, Darlene Allison is a
self-taught artist who has been creating art in many forms for over 35
years. She is a skilled artist, painter, and sculptor; however, she has
focused much of her passion the past 14 years on carving. Using alabasters
and soap stones, some of which she gathered herself from mountains right
here in BC, Darlene will demonstrate the craft of carving.
Please note that all appearances are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
