Attention artisans: The leaves are turning and the days are getting shorter – it’s time to think about applying to take part in the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Annual Artisans’ Market.
The gallery is seeking artisans who would like to have their work for sale in the annual Market, taking place this year from Nov. 19 to Dec. 24. For five weeks, the gallery’s entire exhibition space will be transformed into a stunning shopping boutique, 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.
Entry into the market is juried and entry forms are available at the Gallery, Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m., or online at www.crartgallery.ca. The deadline for submission is Oct. 23.
