Port Moody arts hub to launch curated sale in time for Christmas shopping

Forty artists and artisans will have their work on display starting Nov. 12.

A curated display of fine art, décor and handmade crafts is up for sale — as of Thursday — at PoMoArts in Port Moody.

The St. Johns Street arts hub will open its annual Winter Treasures exhibit Nov. 12, boasting the work of more than 40 artists and artisans.

Among the more well-known artists taking part are Jeff Wilson who competed on the CBC program Landscape Artist of the Year this season. Wilson is an award-winning painter from Scotland who is based out of Portside Studios in Vancouver.

As well, the pottery of D’Arcy Margesson — an instructor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design — will be up for grabs in Winter Treasures. His pieces can be seen in the Museum of Anthropology and the Canadian Craft Museum.

Miles van Yperen, a Burnaby printmaker inspired by vintage illustrations, will exhibit his art along with jeweller Rubina Mangat and wood turner Des Wilson, a retired dean of science and technology at Douglas College.

Winter Treasures launches with a virtual reception with the artists on Facebook Live, on Thursday at 7:15 p.m. The public is welcome to attend the online opening.

The show ends Dec. 22.
