Thanks everyone for a great show!
|This was our fouth year at the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair. Once again we presented a stunning line-up of eighteen exceptional artists who were on hand during the entire show to meet with our visitors and to explain their work and answer questions.
The West Fine Art Show was beautifully and professionally staged and provided a rare opportunity for people to connect with a wide variety of representational art most of which showcased our western Canada lifestyle.
Also, we featured:
Remembering Jeff Robinson Display
Lord Tweedsmuir Emerging Young Artists Display
John Gilliat on Guitar
|Emerging Young Artists
...a display of exceptional art by students of
Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School
The following eleven students had their art displayed: Maddie Mitro, Margaret Armstrong, Ashley Pocrnich, Casey Castaneda, Trisha Guarin, Erin Kroi, Herkirat Waraich, Lucy Fournier. Three prize-winners are photographed here in front of their works L-R: Rebecca Lahti (second prize), Claire Jin (first prize) and Faye Marwick (third prize).
|A GREAT ART SHOW! supported by great people.
For the past three years, partial proceeds of all art sales, at this show, were directed to CH.I.L.D. Foundation and the Cloverdale Rodeo Youth Initiative Foundation.
A few days after our 2017 show, Grace MacCarthy passed away.
Her unparalleled service to British Columbia and its citizens will not be forgotten. She lived her life well and it has been our privilege to work alongside her these past few years.
|Grace McCarthy||At our 2017 show opening, Red Robisnson spoke about his son Jeff and Crohn's Disease. In the years to come we intend to honour Jeff's heroic battle with Crohn's Disease and at the same time join-in the fight to support CH.I.L.D Foundation in its work to eradicate this terrible disease.

|Red Robinson and his wife Carole were presented this portrait of their son Jeff by artist Lalita Hamill at the opening of the West Fine Art Show. Lalita, after learning about Jeff Robinson and his battle with Crohn's Disease, decided to paint his portrait as an artistic way of remembering him. A "Remembering Jeff" wall, which tells Jeff's story, is an important feature of the art show which runs May 18 thru 21. Partial proceeds of all art sales will go to CH.I.L.D. Foundation which funds research for a cure for Chrohn's Disease.|
