Noel: Open art studio sale at Art Alchemy

Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one this Christmas or simply looking to feed your senses with colour and art? The Noel: Open Studio Sale is the place for you.

Friday, Dec. 5, from 5-8 p.m.,  Art Alchemy will open its doors to host an exhibit and sale of all of its six artists: Helen Utsal, Marianne Enhorning, Ian Fry, Maggie Ziegler, Sofie Skapski and Lucy Schappy.

Visitors will have an opportunity to see the studio in full work mode with each of the artists displaying new and “in progress” works. Refreshments will be served, including mulled cider in the spirit of the season. The studio will offer extended open hours for the remaining weeks until Dec. 23: Monday to Saturday 12-4.

Art Alchemy is an artist-run, shared studio space located upstairs at 362C – 10th St in Courtenay (sorry: stair access only).

The studio is a creative hotbed where artists can “go to work” in a communal environment of co-creating. All six artists have distinctly unique and individual styles and subject matter. All six will be in attendance Dec. 5 to discuss their work. There will be something for everyone with a wide selection of originals, prints, calendars and cards. Many of the artists will be creating smaller, more affordable works suitable for Christmas giving.

Stop in on your way home from work or en route to your Christmas party for Christmas cheer and inspiration!
