“Art with Flair – The Virtual Exhibition” has received rave reviews, with hundreds of views each day. With that in mind, the board of Charbonneau Arts Association has voted to extend festival website through the end of December. This means all can continue to enjoy the Art Gallery, Music Stage, Student Art, the Pandemic Art Project, and the Blackfish Gallery livestream videos. And purchase direct for the holidays.
We want to extend our sincere thanks to all our participating artists, musicians, our many sponsors, donors, supporters, and many volunteers this year. We could not have brought you this year’s virtual exhibition with every one of you.
All our best,
Rick Cady, Chair
