A Month For Beginnings

MAY 2023

[Report Prepared by Vice-President Maxine Howchin] Spring has sprung and so many things are beginning!  My garden is coming to life and my Yard Art is increasing.  I'm also hoping to get my fused glass window finished while the weather is good so that I can have the window out in the sunlight.

There are many things starting up, which is very exciting. Cloverdale Market Days will have their first market on May 27th, which is always great fun for everyone.  Make sure to visit our table and say hello!  We will have a different craft for kids (and kids-at-heart) each month, as well as information on upcoming ACS events.

The Arts Council is doing the Work of Art Conference again in-person on May 13th, which promises to be very inspiring with great subjects and wonderful presenters.  An amazing chance to learn new skills and make connections.  Speaking of connections, Belinda’s Connection Cafe is making glass word magnets this month (May 25th) - so much fun and makes great gifts.

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 14th, so take your mom to a Gallery (Newton Cultural Centre) to enjoy Art, take a class in something you have always wanted to try, or do something you have not done for a while.  Go to a play or maybe a Spring concert.

Carol would like to send a huge congratulations to all of the dancers who participated in the Surrey Festival of Dance (SFD) this year.  Seeing their dedication and passion was so rewarding, and she can’t wait for the SFD Honours Awards on May 11th!

Spring is for renewal/growth and exploration.  Enjoy the beauty around you.  There is so much incredible Art out there if we take the time to look and explore.  The fun has just begun.
