Don't miss the chance to see Summerside Art Club's newest exhibition in its natural habitat. Animal Kingdom, will be roaring through December at Eptek Art & Culture Centre. You'll find artwork representing creatures of all sizes. There's also a large collection of needle-felted animals, and a mixed-media batch of beetles. Artists from the group will be onsite for art demonstrations periodically throughout the exhibit. Keep an eye out for Art Afternoons and other events coming up. In December, there will also be a holiday-themed exhibit in the lobby featuring artifacts from the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation collections.
Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition on the history and architecture of Summerside.
Looking for something fun and educational to do with the kiddos? Eptek Art & Culture Centre is offering scavenger hunts that relate to the exhibits. These are available to folks who drop into the site, but you may wish to call ahead.
The members of the Eptek Centre Book Club meet on Thursday, December 3rd at 7pm when they will discuss the book Where's You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. This satirical, documentary novel shows a family coming to terms with who they are when their matriarch, Bernadette, goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. This is a free event, but attendees are asked to contact Eptek Centre or the book club organizers or register.
