It’s autumn at the Campbell River Art Gallery and that means it’s time to start thinking about the annual Christmas Market.

The Art Gallery is seeking artisans who would like to display their work in the annual Christmas Market, taking place this year from Nov. 8 to Dec. 24.

For six weeks, the Gallery’s entire exhibition space is transformed into a gorgeous, glittering Christmas shopping extravaganza, featuring unique handmade crafts and art created by local artisans. Everything from pottery to textiles to woodwork, soap and fine jewelry is featured. The pieces sell on a consignment basis and the Christmas 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 p.m. -5 p.m.

The deadline for submissions is Oct. 13.

Call 250-287-2261, e-mail admin@crartgallery.ca or visit www.crartgallery.ca for more information.
