There’s a full day of action for all ages at Campbell River Art Gallery on Saturday as part of the Rain and Fire Festival of Story that runs through the coming weekend.

Here’s the line up at the Gallery:

On Saturday morning there’s a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon called Electric Accessories. Current exhibiting artist Laurel Terlesky will teach teens and adults how to turn recycled materials like brightly coloured electrical wires in wearable art. Enrolment is $17.50, plus tax for adults, and pre-registration at 250-287-2261 is required.

 Super Saturday, a family art making program for ages six and up, follows from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Settle in for some tales by professional storyteller Laurie North, to  inspire an art project guided by Rebecca Young. As always with Super Saturday, admission for this drop in event is by donation, with thanks to sponsor Marna Disbrow.

 Fire spinners in Spirit Square at 6:30 p.m. are the perfect lead in to performances by poet Annette Yourk, base player Graham Edwards, and the Methuselah Dance Troupe, who have created pieces in response to Laurel Terlesky’’s exhibition, We Love This Stuff So Much…. Terlesky, who takes a poke at our dependence upon electricity in her street art canvasses, will be on hand to discuss her show. The sponsors for this exhibition are Apple Electric and 2 Hills Renovations. Also on hand for this closing night will be the artists from the concurrent show at the Gallery, Hot Light, sponsored by Bruce Laing Electric.
