Support North Okanagan artists at Artsolutely

The Vernon Community Arts Centre show and sale fund-raiser continues to Christmas Eve.

Still trying to find that perfect Christmas gift? The Vernon Community Arts Centre has the answer with the centre’s  annual Christmas show and sale, Artsolutely!

Open seven days a week until Dec. 24, Artsolutely is the Arts Centre’s largest annual fundraiser.

“Twenty per cent of the proceeds go towards programs and initiatives at the Arts Centre, while the rest goes straight towards the talented local artists involved in the show,” said VCAC staffer  Keyanna Burgher.

This year, 24 artists were juried into the show. Several are new to Artsolutely while others are returning artists, said Burgher.

“Being the 11th year running, many shoppers have said that this is the best year yet,” she said.

The show includes pottery, paintings, glass art, fibre art, natural products, wood carvings and so much more.

There really is something for everyone at Artsolutely. Not to mention, you can feel good knowing that you’re not only supporting your local economy, you’re supporting local artists and your local Arts Centre,” said Burgher.

Artsolutely hours are Monday to Friday, 9-7 p.m., Saturday, 9-5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. Hours on Christmas Eve are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
