The old Courthouse Arts Gallery and Arts Space are gradually opening up, with a few open hours a week.

Enjoy the outdoors

while we just let in one or two at a time...


The Nicola Valley Community Arts Council is considering the vital healthcare and safety of our people and emergency care givers.

And we also want to keep our creativity flowing!


Ongoing Programs (Fibre Lovers, Merritt Drum Connection, Ukulele Circle and Art Buds)

are still postponed.   Open Mic is also postponed for now.

But keep an eye on our Facebook pages!  We have things going on!

Nicola Valley Arts Council 

We are currently discussing

how we can interact with our creative arts community. 

For instance, artist Jean Kiegerl took her current Watercolour class online, using Facebook.

Jean has a new program, Here and Now Sketching

Karen Otway is posting upcycle and craft activities on our Nicola Valley Arts Council Facebook page.


We will continue posting inspiring and creative ideas 

on our Instagram and Facebook.  

Stay tuned for more info!
