Our Christmas Marketplace opens on November 3rd and then will be open seven days a week up until December 22nd. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 7pm; Saturday, 11am to 5pm; Sunday, 12 noon to 4pm. Oh, I so want to bounce up and down singing, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! as an antidote to the rain.

Between 11am and 3pm, the Arts Centre in Port Moody comes alive with shows, art demonstrations, drop-in workshops and entertainment. Blackberry Artists will have a discount sale, (with some real pre-christmas bargains!) alongside three of the member artists giving demonstrations of their work. Why not drop by to see stone carver Tom Reid, printmaker James Mah and jewelry artist Amanda Maxwell at work?
We hope to see you there.

During September the work of stone carver, Tom Reid, is featured in the gift shop display. As you can see from the photographs in this post, the display case is filled with a most wonderful menagerie of critters for adoption.
From salmon to dolphins and orcas for your (very large) aquarium, plus horses, swans and and a couple of bears for the landlubbers, there is definitely something pleasing for everyone.
Tom has been carving stone for over 35 years, and works in a variety of materials including soapstone, alabaster and jade. His main works represented in the gallery are inspired by the natural world and he accurately captures exactly the right expression or stance for each animal he carves. Tom also demonstrates his carving techniques at local rock and gem shows around the area so keep an eye out to watch this artist at work.
