A Message from the CRAG’s Executive Director
With November upon us, we’re looking forward to the holiday season here at the CRAG. We will be wrapping up our exhibition programming for Olivia Whetung’s Sugarbush Shrapnel shortly; I encourage all who haven’t visited to do so before it comes down on November 18th.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to share our holiday plans with you.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CRAG team has had to rethink the annual Artisan Market this year. The level of complexity and risk involved in hosting such an event was deemed to high, so we have taken the difficult decision to cancel it. In its place, we will be hosting a Fine Arts Fair in the Main Gallery, from December 3-22, and we truly hope you’ll come by!
The Fine Arts Fair is an intentionally curated art sale, featuring high quality fine art by thoughtfully selected artists from British Columbia. The selection committee and I are so excited to offer locals this truly unique opportunity to shop for professional art right here in Campbell River. Splurge on a new piece for your mantle, bring a client, or just come enjoy this exclusive experience.
The Fine Arts Fair opens in time for the annual downtown Starlight Shopping event on December 3rd and 4th. And for those who prefer to shop online, the CRAG is excited to launch its new online store in early December, featuring both the Fine Arts Fair and a selection of items from our gift shop. Details, including hours, health protocols, and private shopping by appointment, will be posted on Facebook and on our website.
