Under $500 Christmas Sale & Exhibition


Every October the gallery puts a call out to artists of all kinds to submit three artworks all priced at $500 or under and each year this exhibition receives more and more interest from artisans, crafters and visual artists working in all media from across British Columbia.

Some of you keeners may already be underway in your holiday purchases while others leave their shopping until last minute. Regardless, this annual show is always something to check out, whether it be a gift for a friend, loved one, or that perfect little something for yourself.

This exhibition is open to any artist who wants to submit. It not only provides us with some tempting, unique and wonderful gifts, but an excellent cross-section of the talent and artistic happenings in our community. The mixture of artists range from professional, exhibiting artists to teenagers showing their work for the first time and everything in between.

It is always amazing to see the support and turn out we get for this sale. It’s even more intriguing to see the artwork that people carefully choose to take home with them. It sure makes a one of a kind gift!

We would like to thank everyone who has submitted works to this year’s show. Whether you’re a first timer or have been submitting since the beginning, we appreciate your hard work and support of your gallery. So get into the festive spirit and come on down to view these amazing artworks and potentially make one of them your own.

We here at the gallery get an early Christmas this year with unwrapping roughly 200 works and hanging them up for display. We make sure the show is hung for our Soup Bowls Project which is running in its 19th year on November 13th AND 14th. Roughly 200 people are in the gallery each evening and it’s a great kick-off to the sale. The official opening of the Christmas Sale will be November 20th from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The show runs until December 24th, 2015.
