Activities planned for Culture Days

Culture, after all, is one of the best side effects of being human.

Even well-heeled sophisticates like us can use a little bit of goading when it comes to giving culture its due. Culture, after all, is one of the best side effects of being human.

Being able to take in the enrichment that is part and parcel of arts and culture, really does add to the joy of living.

The provincial government has obviously gotten on board this train of thought, designating September 26, 27 and 28 as Culture Days, a perfect time to celebrate our refinement, not to mention the massive talents of others.

A couple of Castlegar entities are all in on this one, with Castlegar Sculpturewalk offering guided tours of the annual program populating the downtown core, and a little beyond, with eye-catching creations.

The plan for getting in on the tour is to simply meet in front of the Kootenay Market, 635 Columbia Avenue at 1 p.m.. The approximately three hour tour will be held on the Saturday and Sunday. Bring a sweater and a snack just in case.

An artistic addition over the three-day course of the Culture Days event is an exhibition at the Kootenay Gallery.

The Gallery will be open through Culture Days, presenting an exhibition of works by Kaslo artist Brent Bukowski.

The Kootenay Gallery is located across Highway 3A from the West Kootenay Regional Airport. It’s just south of the Doukhobor Discovery Centre at the south end of the frontage road called Heritage Way.
