Arts around Alberni: from shopping and rolling to rolling and shopping

This and that from here and there in Alberni's art scene.

Mistletoe Market opens

This year the Mistletoe Market at the Rollin Art Centre takes place from Nov. 12 through Christmas Eve. You won’t want to miss the gallery all dressed for Christmas.

Items include jewellery, woodwork, glass art, fabric art, cards, teddy bears, knitted goods, photography, soaps, lotions, ornaments galore and much more.

Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Located at the corner of Argyle and Eighth Avenue.

Christmas in the valley
