“We’ve done three successful years but what has happened is because of that, we could not do other projects that required cash contributions from donations,” explains volunteer board member Sue Popesku.She says the council isn’t scrapping Sand Sensations B.C. for good and is already considering hosting the event again in 2017.“If a group or individuals come forward to do the Sand Sensation, certainly the Arts Council has the equipment, and the Arts Council is ready to share that information without a doubt,” says Popesku.- Advertisement -Popesku adds, “At this point, the financial support would be very difficult to gather for July.”Sand Sensation B.C. has been held for the past three years at Peace Island Park in Taylor. Local sand from the banks of the Peace River provides a mix of sand and clay – allowing the sculptures to last through the winter and into the spring.The council instead plans to focus their efforts this year on other events such as a third Artwalk, the ‘Take Flight’ street banners, and Mother’s Day pottery sales.Advertisement The Fort St. John Community Arts Council is open to the public and meets the third Wednesday of every month at 12:00 p.m. in the Artspost – located on 10320 94 Avenue.
