The Visual Arts Society’s Christmas Shop opens for business on Friday offering patrons true bargains on affordable art. The action starts on Friday, December 2 at 6 pm and runs until December 17.

Ever since the Christmas Shop first appeared at The Centre 10 years ago, it’s reputation has grown each year as Revelstokians discovered that owning an original pwork of art was not going to break their piggy banks. And the exhibition’s dedication to keeping art affordability continues to this day.

Here’s a small selection of images taken while the show was being hung on Wednesday. But if yiu see something you cant live without, you had better get down to The Centre at 210 Wilson Street (just behind the Days Inn) at 6 pm this Friday for its opening. The Shristmas Shop is open everyday from noon ’til 3 pm until December 17.
