The Campbell River Art Gallery’s Annual Artisans’ Market features treasures for holiday shoppers.

Art market time again

The Art Gallery is seeking artisans who would like to display their work in the annual market

Attention artisans: It’s autumn so that means it’s time to think about the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Annual Artisans’ Market.

The Art Gallery is seeking artisans who would like to display their work in the annual market, taking place this year from Nov. 13 to Dec. 24. For six weeks, the Gallery’s entire exhibition space is transformed into a shopping extravaganza, featuring unique handmade crafts and art created by regional artists and artisans.

Everything from pottery to textiles to woodwork, soap and fine jewelry is featured. The pieces sell on a consignment basis and the Artisans’ Market, sponsored by Chan, Nowosad Boates, Chartered Accountants, is a major fundraiser for Gallery exhibitions and programs.

All displays, inventory control, sales and promotion are taken care of by Gallery staff and volunteers, in order to provide an uncomplicated, easy opportunity for artisans to sell their work.  Artist demonstrations, which are an excellent way to promote an artisan’s work, are also scheduled for those who would like to demonstrate their craft.

Entry into the Market is juried and entry forms are available at the Gallery, which is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m. The deadline for submission is October 24.
