By Gail Gromaski. The Abbotsford Arts Council announces a call for visual artists living in the Fraser Valley to submit artwork to be featured in the Kariton Art Gallery Boutique Gift Shop. The Kariton Boutique showcases the original, handcrafted artwork of local artists in multiple media, such as jewelry, pottery, sculpture, woodwork, fibre-wearable items, paintings, photography, and more. Accepted artists will be featured in the Kariton Boutique until the Summer of 2013.
Submissions will be accepted in-person from February 13 to 17 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located at 2387 Ware Street in Abbotsford. Applications are available at the gallery or for download at www.abbotsfordartscouncil.org. All submissions will be juried.
