UNDER $500 EXHIBITION + SALE


Each year the gallery puts a call out to artists of all kinds to submit three artworks all priced under $500. This exhibition receives interest from artisans, crafters, and visual artists working in all media from across British Columbia. Some of you forward planners may already be underway in your holiday purchases, while others leave their shopping until last minute. Regardless, this annual show is always something to check out, whether it be a gift for a friend, loved one, or that perfect little something for yourself.

This exhibition is open to any artist who wants to submit. It not only provides us with some tempting, unique, and wonderful gifts, but an excellent cross-section of the talent and artistic happenings in our community. The mixture of artists range from professional, exhibiting artists to teenagers showing their work for the first time, and everything in between!

This year we will also be selling these works online through our website. If you have any questions, contact McKaila Ferguson at (250)-493-2928 or at collections@www.bnlczo.icu.
