There are several art events, including the Cedar Heights Artisan Market/Bake Sale; Artistry Christmas Gift and Bake Sale at Blind Bay Hall, and Artist Talks and Demos at Teyjah’s Den in Salmon Arm, in the month of November! Here are some advertising for them! Great time to pick up gifts for family and friends or check out a demo! For more information about Art Events in the Shuswap, go to artintheshuswap.com.
While the weather is great in Shuswap, the smoke today is tending to put a damper on the typical outdoor activities. Thankfully a drive in a air filtered air-conditioned car is not out of the question. Great time to take family and visitors to the great artisan markets in the neighbourhood. Today’s feature artisan market is the “Reedman Gallery Artisan Collaborative” right in the Shuswap, in the Reedman Gallery in Blind Bay Hall. This is right across from Sandy Beach just off of Blind Bay Road. A stroll through the market is just the thing that can lift one’s spirits from the smoky exterior going on right now! If you are interested in finding out more about the market, here is the Facebook link Reedman Gallery Artist Collaborative
So what is this you ask? The Blind Bay Painters created a large painting with 60 canvases combined to make one painting as a group project this year! This is a snippet of cropped picture of the whole painting all put together and framed beautifully (Thanks to Bill Burton for building our massive frame for it!) This painting will be present in the Reedman Gallery during the Canada Day weekend (Fri/Sat 10-4) Each artist takes one or two 6×6 canvases with a grid cutout of their part they need to paint. None of the artists except for the organizer knows what the final painting will look like until they are all complete and framed. The painting is both real and imagined, rich in colour and soft in feel, with local sites. Can you guess what it might be? Come to the show for a viewing!
