Artsolutely awesome

Looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind gift idea?

Then look no farther than the Vernon Community Arts Centre.

Located next to the Okanagan Science Centre in Polson Park, the arts centre is holding its annual Arstolutely sales event.

“You will never find things like this at Walmart,” said Patricia Doyle, with the arts centre. “It's all locally made. We are mixing it up a bit this year, we have some new people who have never been in before.”

There are three rooms full of items for sale.

Artsolutely is also the Arts Council of the North Okanagan’s largest fundraiser of the year with 20 per cent of the proceeds going toward various programs.

Artsolutely features the Okanagan’s best artists selling their finest wares in different mediums such as paintings, drawings, glass, fibre, jewellery, ornaments, pottery, woodcarvings, natural products, and more.

The arts centre is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m., except for Christmas Eve when it will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“When you support a local artist, you are not only giving back to your community, but you are also participating in a simple act of goodwill, which is something everyone wants to feel, especially this time of year,” said Doyle.
