Volunteer Elaine Sloan decorates the tree in preparation for Christmas at the Gallery

It’s that time of year when the Kootenay Gallery of Art offers Christmas at the Gallery for the holiday season.  Over 100 artists and artisans have created work that is showcased in the annual exhibition and sale. There are plenty of new venders along with community favourites.

The Kootenay Gallery chooses artists who live and work in the Kootenays. We are proud to support them and encourage residents to shop locally and support the arts and artisan community. Shopping here also helps to sustain the Gallery as well.

There will be an opening celebration on Friday, November 18 from 12 noon until 8 pm. This will coincide with the annual sale of the Selkirk Weavers and Spinners Guild which takes place next door at the Doukhobor Discovery Centre.  Come and check out both sales while you are in the neighbourhood.

For the opening celebration, there will be hot apple cider, Christmas goodies and more. Visitors can enter a draw for a Gift Basket, donated by Geoff and Katarina Yule.

There is no charge to browse at Christmas at the Gallery. It is a beautiful, and (almost always) calm environment to find the perfect gift items.  We are open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm in November and in December, we are open Sundays, 10 am – 5 pm additionally.

The Kootenay Gallery is located across from the airport, between the Doukhobor Discovery Centre and the West Kootenay office of the BCSPCA. For more information, contact the Gallery at 250.365.3337, email kootenaygallery@telus.net or search www.kootenaygallery.com.
