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).
