Art Gallery becomes Artisan Market through Christmas

From Nov. 19 through Dec. 24, the Campbell River Art Gallery will be transformed into a market featuring nearly 100 local artisans and their work.

Everything from fine jewelry to handmade soaps, woodworking, pottery, glasswork, or delectable like handcrafted caramels, sauces and chutneys will be on offer at the gallery over the course of the over-month-long event. Visitors who stop by on opening day (this Saturday) between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. will be treated to a hot apple cider, a delicious treat and have first crack at the wide array of stunning work created by these regional artisans and artists to get a jump on their Christmas shopping. The market will be open during regular gallery hours, Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout its run.
