New art fair an opportunity for buyers and sellers alike

An art fair is on the way to Kamloops, with formerly owned paintings, prints, photos and drawings up for sale as part of a fundraiser for the local chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists.

Art on the Move will take over the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, 7 West Seymour St., from Feb. 28 to March 3.

The art fair is an opportunity for buyers and sellers alike, with sellers keeping 60 per cent of what their piece sells for, less a fee.

Interested sellers can drop off their items for sale between Feb. 24 and Feb. 26. Detailed information and entry forms can be found online at

Buyers will have more than 300 pieces to choose from, if organizers can meet their goal. And while prices for artwork will vary, the idea behind the sale is to make art affordable.

Art on the Move will be on from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day except the final day, when art will be marked down in price and the doors will close at 4 p.m.

Organizers plan on refreshing art for sale each day, replacing sold items with new ones up for grabs.

Proceeds will go toward the Thompson Nicola Shuswap chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. The chapter formed in 2004 and exists to provide opportunities for artistic growth, development and accreditation for local artists.
