Gallery launches Christmas market

Station House Gallery's authors day this Saturday, Nov. 30 in conjunction with the first Saturday of the gallery’s annual Christmas Market.

The Station House Gallery is hosting an authors day this Saturday, Nov. 30 in conjunction with the first Saturday of the gallery’s annual Christmas Market.

The authors day starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m.

Among the featured artists will be Julie Fowler and her book ‘Grande Dames’ which tells the story of Cariboo artists Vivien Cowan and Sonia Cornwall and their friendships with Group of Seven artists A.Y. Jackson and Joseph Plaskett.

The month long Christmas market at the gallery will have a new twist this year.

Artists and artisans will have their own ‘vendor’ days at the gallery, Tuesdays through Fridays, from noon to 4 p.m.

During that time, and that time only, the vendor’s work will be marked 15 per cent off the usual retail price.

Most will be doing a draw for a piece of their work, many will be offering goodies/samples for customers.
