Ok. The rain can stop, though.

Shay Kuebler/Radical System Art: Glory

On April 24, 2017, in News, by Jessica Beck

Beyond dance, Shay Kuebler / Radical System Art represents movement with meaning – a blunt force of power explodes on the stage with a message to look at the glorification (Glory) of violence in media, childhood and how we’re watching it go by –are you willing to do anything about it? Are you affected by bullying? A dark intensity seeps into the steps of these skilled performers who rise into new realms of dance by marrying martial arts, hip-hop, ballet, and theatre.


May 2 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm $20 Adult/Youth

May 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm $23 Adult / $5 Youth

On April 17, 2017, in News, by Jessica Beck

There were glowing smiles and hearts when our volunteers gathered for our annual appreciation gala on April 13th.

What’s on in April at ArtSpring

On March 28, 2017, in News, by Jessica Beck

Well, what a winter we had with record-breaking snowfall. Many of us shovelled more snow than we thought possible on Salt Spring and trudged our way into town with a unified wish for warmer days. Or was that just me? Lucky for us, April is here and we’re in for a real treat this month with a stellar line up of Salt Spring’s celebrated visual artists, Canadian-made comedy, world-renowned choral music and much more. With a slight twinkle of snow or sunshine, the show will go on.
