Art In the Shuswap Art in the Shuswap was developed to showcase the amazing talented artists that are present in the beautiful Shuswap area in British Columbia, Canada


Argh, I need more hand spun yarn! It makes these cowls into something awesome. I do have a bag of raw fleece downstairs 🧐


CROCKER ART STUDIO update: Thanks to everyone who visited my booth at my first craft fair of the season, Sorrento Lions Craft Fair, which ended Saturday. Although sales were good, my reward was meeting interesting people and sharing stories. Several people commented that the colors and names of my little whimsical houses called “Jellybean Row” and “Jellybean Condos” reminded them of Newfoundland, my home. They were right, the artwork was named for that reason.
My next craft shows: Artistry Christmas and Bake Sale, Blind Bay – Nov 18th-19th and Sorrento Community Hall – Nov 25th

Exhibit at Gallery Vertigo in Vernon, BC . . . For four days in the Fall for the past ten years, textile artists have gathered at Sorrento Centre - Retreat & Conference Centre on Shuswap Lake to learn and create textile art under the tutorship of Catherine Nicholls. I have been fortunate to have been part of these workshops as a participant and also as a "helper". A collection of work created in, or inspired in, these workshops has been gathered for exhibition at Gallery Vertigo this month. Drop by and see the wonderful art until October 28th. "Next Year, Same Place".

Oh, yes, I have four pieces in this exhibit ;)


We are seeing harvest happening all around us these days . . . the corn is being harvested for feed, the root vegetables are fabulous and Sorrento Centre - Retreat & Conference Centre's farm has the most amazing French Heirloom pumpkins that will need to be in my next group of paintings! These are some of my loose sketches and watercolours that have become greeting cards. The lighting is a bit off today as there is smoke in the air again but they needed to be packaged up for the Shuswap Artisan Market. Hope you like them.


As an Introduction to our 'Little Treasures' Gift and Christmas Sale, opening on November 15, Courtyard Gallery would like to invite you to a 'Winter Walk' along our Feature Wall. Enjoy the efforts of our members who have transferred the aura of winter to canvas and paper; an exhibit that portrays the artists' impressions of our dazzling snowy landscapes.


Cozy lounge wear, nighties and children's wear is sewn with fabulous attention to detail by Linda Spence-Watson. Wondering what to buy for an elderly grandma or auntie? How about these comfy bed jackets? They are the best!


Yesterday was my last day of eco printing with fresh leaves for this year. We have had a wonderful and warm fall and many of the leaves are still on the trees but they probably won't last much longer as it is now dipping below freezing at night and the fall precipitation has started.

These raw silk and habotai silk scarves (or table runners or bed runners etc) have been eco printed with leaves from my garden and neighbourhood. A couple of them were previously dyed with logwood or osage orange (both natural dyes) to shift the colours a bit. Some of the leaves react with the logwood dye (purple) to create silhouette shapes that discharge some of the colour ... a very cool effect.

The eco prints have been ironed but have not yet been rinsed, washed, and finished off but that will happen in the next week or two and soon they will be ready to move on to their forever homes. Let me know if one is particularly asking to be set aside for you ;)


Myself and Carmen Knight of Stitches in Tyme - Contemporary Crochet, will be two of the vendors plus many more awesome and talented people there. Come check it out, you never know what you might find.


New Member Feature: Carried Away

Carried Away Taco Truck, currently operates out of Salmon Arm and travels throughout BC for events. 🌮

Melissa gets her culinary experience from a family history of great cooks. Her passion to never stop creating is apparent through her delicious food. At Carried Away she simply believes food tastes better from scratch and homemade is always best.

Perfectly named “Rumour”, the 13 foot restored 1973 trillium trailer is designed perfectly as a mobile kitchen. It’s classic, vintage and uniquely memorable!

You can find them set up around the Shuswap, at local businesses and events. They will be at our Market by the Bay in Centennial Park on Thursday nights this summer!
