Kootenay Gallery of Art offers hand-made gifts

Christmas at the Gallery is open seven days a week.

If you are still looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone, then you may want to check out the Kootenay Gallery of Art.

Christmas at the Gallery is in full swing and is open seven days a week between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The whole building is filled with pottery, sewn crafts, paintings, knitted dolls and much more. There are local books for all ages, including SS Minto by Bruce Rohn.

The gallery also hosts one of the largest selections of jewellery in Castlegar, from beaded earrings and necklaces to hand-crafted silver designs. This year the gallery has silver pendants and bracelets by Métis artist Terry Jackson.

As always, there is a selection of paintings and photographs by Kootenay artists.

Executive director Val Field created a display that feels both homey and magical.

“We want you to feel welcome here at the gallery at any time of year but especially during the Christmas season,” Field said. “We search for holiday-themed goods such as stockings and ornaments to supplement our selection.”

Shopping at the event supports not just the gallery, but also artisans who live in the region. This helps support the local economy and you will not find items like these anywhere outside the Kootenays.

The Kootenay Gallery of Art is located at 120 Heritage Way, across from the airport.
