The Kimberley Arts Council’s annual Christmas Gift Show & Sale opens in the Gallery at Centre 64 on November 26.

The show provides an opportunity for area residents to buy unique gifts hand-crafted by some of the Kootenays’ most talented artists and artisans.

As in previous years the artists and artisans have been specially invited to sell their wares at this show because their works are of superior quality.

Many popular artisans from previous years have been invited back, including Kimberley fabric artist Virginia Anderson, whose hand-felted mitts were a big seller last year; Helen Robertson, whose ceramics and paintings attracted a lot of attention; and Lori Joe, whose colourful paintings of familiar scenes in Kimberley have proved to be a hot number with both residents and visitors.

Joining them will be Janet Klock of Golden with Découpage Pigs; Carolyn Barzilay of Fairmont with painted glassware; Greg Dahl of Calgary, wood crafts; Kara Clarke of Kimberley, jewellery; Christine Warren, Kimberley, jewellery; Marianne Rennick, Kimberley, paintings and cards; Darlene Purnell, Cranbrook, fabric art; Nicole Yanota, Coleman, Alberta, paintings, prints, and cards; and Sandy Kunze of Wynndel, ceramic art.

So, if you are looking for a unique gift for someone who appreciates fine craftwork this Christmas, this show and sale offers you a wide spectrum of fine art and crafts and is probably the place you want to shop. All items are priced to sell.

The public is invited to attend the opening reception for the Christmas Gift Show Saturday, Nov. 30, from 2 to 4 p.m. The show and sale will continue at Centre 64 until December 22 each Tuesday through Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.

For more information call Christine at 250-427-4919.

Admission is free.
