Know it All

It’s a Family Affair at Cranbrook Arts

Yvonne Vigne and her four daughters have their paintings on display for the month of January. What a very talented group of ladies – a must see.

Yvonne was born and raised in the Kootenays and graduated from the Kootenay School of Art. She is a long time Cranbrook resident and is currently the President of Cranbrook and District Arts Council. Those of you who frequent the Arts Council Gallery and Gift Shop will be familiar with Yvonne’s beautiful paintings. However, to see them on display with her daughters’ work is a treat!

Yvonne’s daughters, Monique Cudbertson, Nicole Vigne, Frances Slywka and Rachelle Golding all love to paint like their mother, but they each have their own styles. For a sneak peak check out the Cranbrook Arts website – www.cranbrookarts.com

You are welcome to meet these Artists on January 13th, 2018 from 2-4 pm in the Gallery at 1013 Baker Street Cranbrook. Please come and show support for our local artists.

Anastasia Ballet Jorgen

Saturday February 24th at 7:30pm Tickets $45 Regular | $39 Big Ticket | $35 Big Ticket PLUS

The mystery of what happened to the seventeen year old Grand Duchess has fascinated people for nearly a century. Anastasia is both the tragic story of an innocent girl and the subject of modern mythology, as there is great speculation about what actually happened that fateful summer of 1918. The human drama of a young girl born to privilege and cast out into a world of immense heartache proves an extraordinarily gripping tale. This ballet explores the emotions, aspirations, and affections of this lovable yet controversial character as the world transforms around her.
