The Christmas Store
2020 has been a year of disruption but people are determined to enjoy the seasonal pleasures. One of these pleasures is gift shopping. The Monashee Arts Council has been told repeatedly by people who pop their heads in the Gallery door: “Bring back the gift shop!” People want to support local crafters and artisans. We have tried to create a Christmas store where that can happen:
Over twenty local artists have set up displays in the Village Gallery (1975 Vernon Street) with samples of their products, bio, photo and business cards. People can come in, get ideas and contact the artists outside the store at their own and the artist’s convenience. The Monashee Arts Council is not charging for this community service.
If you are in a hurry and see something you want and don’t have the time to contact the artists themselves… we will accommodate you. Items in the store are for sale.
The show runs from November 2nd to December 24th and is open from 10 to 4 Monday to Saturday. The store will be closed from 12:30 to 1 pm each day for sanitization.
Please do not shop if you are feeling unwell, wear a mask and use the sanitizer provided. We plan on enjoying this wonderful season!
Also don’t forget to check out the current Youth show we have been thrilled to have over 30 young artists from as young as 4 up to 24 years old bring in over 60+ works of art to our current show!
ArtKids! is on until October 31st
Also join us November 17th for our AGM!
