The Kamloops Arts Council is gearing up for its annual SMALL//works show. This is an opportunity for community members to buy local, small, one-of-a-kind, original artworks at the Kamloops Arts Council’s SMALL//works event.
Artists are invited to contribute up to 10 pieces of art. This event is great for artists to show their work and make sales during the holiday season. Artists are asked to submit smaller sized artwork, following a sizing guide, which will create an exciting and affordable Christmas shopping experience! Any member of the Kamloops Arts Council can submit artwork for this fundraiser. Submissions are due by November 1st.
SMALL//works is an excellent chance to snag some fresh artwork for gifts, or for your own office or home. Works by area artists will be for sale for up to $300, with many works under $100.
Last year saw over 350 works of small, affordable and original art, and we will be planning to showcase the same number this year.
Art will be sold right off the wall, so come early for the best selection. All sales will be split 50-50 between the artists and the Kamloops Arts Council in support of its community arts programs.
The show opens Friday, Nov. 20th and continues to Dec. 19th.
Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10-4. Admission is free.
Guests will be able to book free appointments to view the artwork in a socially distanced manner and avoid needing to wait outside on opening weekend.
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.
