Get ready for Christmas at Cannery full of art

Visit six galleries under one roof in the old Cannery at Ellis and Cawston in Kelowna.

  • Nov. 30, 2012 12:00 p.m.

The old Cannery building at the corner of Cawston and Ellis now houses six galleries catering to your taste for the finer things in life.

With the season of festivities upon us celebrate with the annual Christmas Show and Sale coming up on Thursday, Dec. 6, Thursday from 5:30 – 8 p.m.

This old cannery has housed Hambleton Galleries for many years. Hambleton will be celebrating its 50th year next year offering fine art in Kelowna, so this will help start off a year of interesting shows and sales from the collection of contemporary artists they represent to the historical work they find for the discerning eye.

There are also new artists that being added to the stable. Watch for Shirley Thompson and her  florals to join us very soon, recently featured in Arabella Magazine. Robert Genn was also featured in that magazine and if you get a chance to read the article you will understand why he is such a force in Western Canada.

Hambleton will be offering Christmas treats during the show and sale, including their famous Swedish meatballs.

In addition, check out Turtle Island Gallery, featuring a few of their fine artists as well as bannock treats and native flute music.

The Warehouse Gallery will be celebrating their grand opening that evening so make sure you make the scene for the new gallery.

Justin Paul Fashion Gallery will be open as well and will have lots of new inventory and seasonal surprises for visitors.

Tangerine Tree Photography Gallery is a new to the building. They specialize in high dynamic range photography and studio work as well as graphic design.

Free Stone Spirit Gallery on Cannery Lane will also be open. They do studio photography and fine art photography.

All of these galleries are under the same roof and share the back hallway so once you are inside the building you can tour all six galleries without having to brave the elements.

Come early to get a parking place and stay as long as you want.
