CRACKERJACK 2009 - one of the North Shore's premier fine craft shows, has found a new home at The Music Box and Silk Purse Studio on Bellevue Avenue in West Vancouver.
This year the show will take place on Friday evening November 13, Saturday November 14 and Sunday November 15 and will feature many North Shore artists such as Celia Pickles, Rosalind Aylmer, Bonnie Adie, Maggi Kneer, Anne Marie Andrishak, Sheila Morissette, Leslie McGuffin and Lemonpark. Also furniture and other beautiful accessories have been loaned by Maiwa Handprints and will be for sale.
This very successful fine craft event and sale was begun to promote the work of artists whose creations have found favour with the public, but who do not neccessarily have an established gallery presence. Since the beginning, CRACKERJACK has gained a reputation as THE place to find beautiful and unusual art and craft pieces. This show has attracted growing crowds, forcing the move to a new location.
CRACKERJACK features wearable textiles, jewllery, ceramics, wall hangings and seasonal decorations as well as unusal pieces by hand picked fine craftspeople from B.C.'S lower mainland. Here you will find everything for the discerning collector or the individual seeking that perfect gift.
Please visit on Friday November 13, 7-10 pm for a reception to meet the artists. The sale continues Saturday November 14, 11 am - 6 pm and Sunday November 15, noon - 6 pm at both The Music Box, 1564 Argyle Ave., West Vancouver and next door at the Silk Purse Studio.
