TinTown Artists’ Open House Saturday

Door bells will jingle with delight Saturday, Dec. 5 when the TinTown artists and neighbours open studios, doors and hearts for the annual TinTown Christmas Sale and Open House. From this unique and creative neighbourhood comes unique and creative seasonal offerings for all ages.

Just wandering the neighbourhood indulging in old-time hospitality can be enough of a good feeling. Add to that shopping for local art gifts for all budgets, enjoying a specialty coffee, taking part in fun family activities, sampling wares or chatting with artists about their work and you’ve got a very, merry TinTown happening.

The TinTown artists have a reputation for high calibre art combined with fun events and this year’s Christmas ‘walkabout’ continues the tradition.  Silver jewelry by Robert Moon, stained glass by Nancy Morrison, RustWorks window art by Roberta Meilleur, paintings and art cards by Lynn Farwell and Ian Frye and silk-screened clothing designs by Gordon Ross and Gillian Brooks will impress, inspire and entice. An art market in Red Tree Coffee Shop offers lots more crafted shopping options, Saltwater School’s Winter Faire will engage kids and adults alike and Prontissima Pasta’s samples along with holiday refreshments in the studios provide delicious treats.

Come to TinTown (a.k.a. Rosewall Crescent in Courtenay) with friends and family Saturday Dec. 5, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and share a mellow, neighbourly, creative experience while shortening your gift list. The TinTown Artists’ Open House is an invitation to be our guest!
