The Cochrane Integrated Arts Society(CIAS) is looking to team-up with visual artists of all kinds to set up a non-profit arts collective. CIAS has a space proffered to display and sell the work of visual artists from the Town of Cochrane, Foothills, Bighorn, Mountian View and Rocky View Counties, and Stoney Nation.

"We need to show we have interest from the artists in the community so we can actually form a collective to do this", says the President of CIAS, Jane Kaczmer.

This collective is for all artist levels, from established all the way to new and emerging. CIAS is also planning on doing occasional monthly themes.

In order to gauge the interest of the visual arts community, there is a short online survey that can be filled out here
