Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Christmas Arts and Crafts Market Saturday afternoon to see an up and coming artist at work.

Charlotte Hood-Tanner from Merville will be at the Gallery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19. Hood-Tanner’s bright and beautiful prints, cards and ‘love tags’ are featured at the Christmas Market this year for the first time. Hood-Tanner is an artist and mother who works as a teacher in Comox.  Being with young people allows her to stay in touch with current trends, which inspired her to create her love tags – based on the idea of dog tags. The love tags are miniature compositions meant to reflect the individuals who wear them, and are sure to appeal to those who love art and fashion.

Hood-Tanner is a graduate of the Fine Arts Foundation program at Capilano College. She then switched her focus to biology, but never lost her passion for the visual arts.

“Over the years, I have always found time to sneak in the odd painting between babies, and have recently found more time to explore my art as my children are getting older,” she said.

She is drawn to bright colour, which is immediately apparent when you view her vibrant works.

The CR Art Gallery’s Christmas Arts and Crafts Market, sponsored by Chan, Nowosad and Boates, Chartered Accountants, is open from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Christmas Eve.

The Market features the work of dozens of artisans from Campbell River, Quadra Island, Cortes Island and other communities in the region. Shoppers aiming to support the work of local artisans as well as programming at the Campbell River Art Gallery have been flocking to the Market since it opened last week.

Be sure to stop by the Market this Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to see the talented Charlotte Hood-Tanner at work.

The CR Art Gallery is looking forward to feature demonstrations from other talented artisans every Saturday until Dec. 17.

For more information, stop by the Gallery from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., call 250-287-2261 or e-mail contact@crartgallery.ca.
