Mother’s Day show gives South Delta artists a chance to showcase their work

For the Love of Art celebrated the abundance of creativity that can be found in South Delta with a successful inaugural event in November at Ladner’s Harris Barn

The brainchild of local artist Jan Rankin, the show brought together 26 artists under one roof. Building off that success, Rankin is now planning another show for May.

For the Love of Art and Moms in South Delta is being billed as a Mother’s Day show and sale on Saturday, May 11 at Ladner’s Fisherman’s Hall.

Application deadline for artists to showcase their work is Feb. 28.

“I did the first show… and there was such a good response from the public and the arts community… so the whole intention is to take that and make a few opportunities throughout the year here in South Delta and give different types of artists to showcase their work,” said Rankin.

“That was the purpose of the Harris Barn show, giving an outlet for many artists who have nowhere to show their work. This show will be along the same idea, but a bit smaller. I love that there are places in South Delta like Fisherman’s Hall which has so much personality and character.”

Rankin said she has room for up to 14 artists.

“I’m really hoping to have someone who is a chocolatier or candy maker who is local, someone who does flowers, but the artists still have to be artisans of their own creations,” she said. “We will be doing the Harris Barn event again in November. I’m also working with a winery with the hopes of doing another show during the summer.”
