Expect the unexpected at Art in the Dark 

Bodypaint, glowing clay wheel, DJ, music & dance at 19+ black-light art party, Saturday, Oct. 15 at Lansdowne Village

Following on its first successful run last year, the Kamloops Arts Council’s Art in the Dark fundraiser returns Saturday, Oct. 15, this time at Lansdowne Village.

Expect performances from Bees & the Bare Bones, Studio 253, and many more, the first-ever UV Art Battle, plus a bevy of interactive activities that include glow-in-the-dark clay with Amanda Eccleston, live glow-in-the-dark painting from Ken Farrar, and bodypainting by airbrush artist Kelly Wright,.

“We had one of last year’s attendees say ‘It’s like a kids’ birthday party for grown-ups!'” says Kathy Sinclair, executive director of the Kamloops Arts Council. “That’s the element of fun we’re striving for — to give people a great arts experience that’s a lot more than your average night out at the bar or club.”

The event runs 7 pm to midnight at the old Field’s Department Store at Lansdowne Village (#211, between Spitfire Computers and Herbasana/London Drugs).

View last year’s event in photos by Katie Kershaw here and photos by Jacquie Shinkewski here.

Tickets are $40 ($30 for students and KAC members) at www.kamloopsarts.ca. The price includes participation in all arts activities, music and dance performances throughout the evening. Bring cash for cocktails, wine and beer, artwork up for silent auction, and food. All proceeds support the Kamloops Arts Council’s ongoing community programming.
