As the flowers bloom and the winter-that-never-ends finally recedes, we are working on a busy April at the Museum. Since our reopening last year, we have had record-setting visitation as people come in to check out the new community museum space. Drop in next time you are down in the Gibsons area and we will be happy to give you a tour of the new gallery. We can even give you a ride on our new platform lift to the 2nd floor where you can explore our latest exhibit on the Finnish settlers of Gibsons.
Coming up on Wednesday, April 26 is our Annual General Meeting which starts at 7:30pm (doors at 7). Come down to the Museum to hear about all of our exciting news, including plans for our next feature exhibit on the Fixed Link. You can also sign up to become a member of the Museum, and vote in the election of the SCMA board of directors if you are already a member.
Remember all of that snow in February? Well much of it fell on the weekend of our Coast Salish wool weaving workshop. Many of the workshop participants couldn’t make it through the wintery streets to attend the workshop, so we have scheduled a 2nd workshop on Saturday, April 29 from 10am – 4:30pm. Coast Salish weaver extraordinaire Jessica Silvey will lead the workshop. Sign up to weave a wall hanging using a table loom ($65), or a scarf using a floor loom ($85). Jess will teach you the basics in Coast Salish weaving to make your very own masterpiece. Call the Museum to register as space is limited.
