This month welcome to two new artists into the gift shop.
Firstly, we have the amazing cottonwood bark carvings of George Blackstock. Most of his work is for hanging on the wall but freestanding pieces are available too.
Next we have former Port Moody Arts Centre artist-in-residence, Pauline Doyle whose unique ceramic work is a beautiful quirky addition to our shelves.
Please do visit to say hello to the new work :)

This month work by jewelry artist, Amanda Maxwell, is featured in the City Hall display case. Her work comprises wire crochet plus or minus bits of felted fluff so she can call herself a mixed media artist. As well as pieces of wearable art, which is a polite way to refer to unique and odd jewelry, some of her mixed media framed pieces are on show too.
As usual, all pieces are for sale; phone the gift shop (604 931 2008) to arrange purchase.
