Upstairs in the main gallery you will find work by members of the Cariboo Art Society and the Cariboo Potter’s Guild Friday, Nov. 7 from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The Cariboo Art Society will have small matted and framed pieces of water colour paintings and mono-prints as well as full sized paintings in acrylic, water colours and mixed media,” says society president Cat Prevette.

“We also will have one-of-kind signed book marks and 2015 calendars with signed, original paintings on each.”

The show will also include refreshments and “goodies” by donation, which the artists are providing this year, Prevette says.

“The artists plan to be around as much as possible to talk to people about the art available,” Prevette adds.

More potters than ever will be participating in this show, says potter Judy Prevost.

“You can expect to see everything from dishes, serving plates, snowmen, wall hangings, clocks and of course Anna’s (Roberts) burnished ware,” Prevost says.

Downstairs in their working studio, the Williams Lake Spinners, Weavers and Fibre Artists will be holding their annual Christmas sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This group has all kinds of great Christmas gift ideas from knitting to weaving, to homemade jam. They will also be spinning and weaving.
