Linda Lambkin's work will be on display at the Agassiz Monday Painters Annual Art Show on Saturday

Lambkin’s work on display at annual art show

Agassiz painting group holds show in late member's honour

Every Monday, a dedicated group of artists gather together to work on their craft, inside the Agassiz United Church.

And once a year, they put that work on display for their annual show.

This year, that show will be on Saturday, May 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be no featured artist this year, however the show will be dedicated to a member who recently passed away.

“We are holding the show for Linda Lambkin,” said painter Lynda Anderson. “It will be in her memory.”

Lambkin was only a member of the decades-old group for the last few years, but in the short time she was with the group, she’s made a lasting memory.

Six of her pieces will be on display, including the one shown here. Another piece that was recently purchased by a private buyer will be brought to the show for display.

A short biography will also be on display, describing Lambkin’s interests in the arts through her life.

The Agassiz Monday Painters annual show and sale includes a raffle draw, refreshments and a chance to vote for your favourite pieces.
