Not too soon for artists to think of Christmas

The Campbell River Art Gallery is searching for new artisans for its 11th Annual Christmas Market

The Campbell River Art Gallery is searching for new artisans for its 11th Annual Christmas Market, taking place this year from Nov. 10 – Dec. 24.

It may be too early to start thinking of sugarplums and Santa Claus, but it’s not too early for artisans to apply to have their works in this glittering Christmas Market.

For six weeks, the gallery’s entire exhibition space will transform into a plethora of elegant, unique crafts and art by local artisans, including everything from jewelry to soaps, woodwork, pottery, textiles and much more.

Pieces sell on a consignment basis.

All displays, inventory control, sales and promotion are conducted 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 welcome for those who would like to demonstrate their craft. The Gallery’s portion of proceeds of sales is an important support for exhibitions, children’s and adult classes, and workshops.

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 submission is Oct. 15.  Phone 250-287-2261, email or visit for more information.
