I have a section of wall for my photography at the Art Gallery Osoyoos Christmas Artisan Market. The show, featuring several dozen local artists, runs until December 22.

The Christmas Artisan Market opens at The Art Gallery Osoyoos on November 9 and it features the work of several dozen local artists and artisans. It runs until December 22, 2019.

Items at the market are perfect for unique Christmas gifts.

I’m participating this year for the second time and am showing a selection of recent photos, as well as several others I’ve never shown before. Because space for each artist is limited, I’ll be rotating the featured photos throughout the exhibition, but all are available and can be seen in the web gallery below. I’ll also have a special selection of cards and matted photos on display.

The Christmas Artisan Market, “Christmas Treasures,” kicks off with an open house on Saturday, November 9 from noon to 4 p.m.

The gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. on Tuesday to Saturday. It’s located at 8713 Main Street, Osoyoos, just west of the Town Hall.
