Kamloops’ most-anticipated annual holiday shopping event returns to the Kamloops historic Old Courthouse November 18 – 19 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Christmas at the Courthouse, hosted by the Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Co-op features two floors of unique, hand-crafted artisan items created by members of the Co-op as well as other local vendors.
Decorated for the holidays inside and out with member artists dressed in beautiful period costumes, this festive shopping experience is a treat for the whole family. Shoppers can enjoy the varied offerings from the artisans and enter draws for several abundant gift baskets with a donation of any amount.
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is non-profit Co-operative gallery managed by ten local artists. It was founded in 2007 and is one of the longest running artist Co-operatives in British Columbia. The gallery is open year-round and features an ever-changing selection of art and artisan goods to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is located in the historic old brick Kamloops courthouse, a designated heritage building shared with Kamloops Arts Council. The building was built in 1909 and is located at the corner of 1st and Seymour in Kamloops.
About Kamloops Courthouse Gallery
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.
The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.
Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.
We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
