The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture brings their annual fall art exhibition to the Rossland Art Gallery this November. Running November 3rd to 14th the gallery will be open from 12pm to 6pm daily for visitors.

Craft has been defined as the decorative arts that relate to functional objects that are used in daily life. These objects require a variety of historical skills and techniques to produce and are often underrepresented in the broader arts community. This exhibition offers an exclusive forum for the local craft persons/artisans working with wood, pottery, glass, textiles, metal, mixed media and jewelry to display their skills, explore their personal aesthetics and to share with the broader community their most expressive work. This exhibition, highlighting craft, provides an opportunity for the viewing public to contemplate the role of artisanal craft as a reflection of culture in our day to day life. 

The goal of this project is to: 

  • Celebrate the crafts people in our community
  • Validate craft as an art form 
  • Provide exposure and access to traditional crafts to people in our community
  • Provide an opportunity for craftspeople/artisans to share their work with the community

We invite the community to come engage with art in a safe space. We have a sanitization station with contact tracing at the entrance to the gallery. We have disposable masks but do ask that you bring your own. We are limiting the space to be open to six (6) guests at a time. Volunteers are here to keep the gallery clean so you can enjoy your visit!

A big thanks to our supporters the Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, City of Rossland, and BC Arts Council for helping us continue to run arts programming during this time.

We hope to see you over the coming days!
