What is it you look for in a Christmas present?
Of course, you want something unique, something that will delight and surprise, and in that department, few presents top original art. So, with more than fifty artists displaying paintings, sculpture, jewelry, pottery and more at Rainforest Arts, it’s a great place to find gifts that will add a bright touch to someone’s home and holiday.
There will be an even greater choice of original art to enjoy and buy this season. A special floor-to-ceiling salon style exhibition, opened in early November, bringing in an expanded selection of locally produced works. And if you aren’t sure what might suit the tastes of friends or loved ones, you can always give them a gift certificate, knowing there’ll be a terrific selection for them to browse.
Many of the artists showing at the gallery are from the Chemainus area, so their works often touch on local themes and scenes. And since Rainforest Arts is a non-profit, run by volunteers on behalf of the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society, when you buy a Christmas gift, you’ll be making a contribution to the arts and artists in your community.
Rainforest has an excellent selection for every budget. From art greeting cards, and colorful accessories, to large format prints and original art, you’ll find something memorable to put under the tree.
As a bonus, November and December shoppers will have a chance at something extra-special: with every purchase, they can enter their names to win a basket packed with art gifts valued at hundreds of dollars, donated by Rainforest’s artists. The draw for prizes will take place in late December, in time for you to add a few extras to your gift list… or give yourself a fantastic present.
The friendly volunteers at Rainforest Arts are always happy to answer questions and show shoppers around. So, when you’re making your list, and checking it twice, be sure to visit Rainforest Arts this holiday season. You’re sure to discover some great ideas and see some wonderful art.
