Artwork deserves to be seen and appreciated in person. With this in mind, we have put in place the safest shopping experience possible. As of December 9, 2020 we are open to the public with a limit of 4 patrons at any time at the Old Courthouse building. It is first come/first serve. If we are at max capacity, you will need to either wait in line or return later.
Other COVID safety procedures include: hand sanitation upon entering, mandatory mask wearing, contract tracing information gathered, and restrooms are closed to the public. We ask that you please only attend with those that are in your immediate bubble. This is not the time for social gathering. You can find our updated COVID procedures on our website.
All of the SMALL//works 2020 is also currently online in our shop and we are currently offering curbside pickup or shipping (at an additional cost). Shopping online is the safest way to shop this season while still supporting local artists!
Stop in to visit us, we’ve missed you! We share the building with the Kamloops Courthouse Gallery and we guarantee there is something to be found for everyone on your shopping list.

Thank you for supporting local artists and happy holidays!



Come and be part of the this great “little” art show. The SMALL//works fundraiser is a fabulous opportunity to show your work and support the Kamloops Arts Council! This exhibition is comprised of small, one of a kind, original artworks and is the perfect time for gift givers and art collectors to find fun, affordable artwork just in time for the holiday season. Unlike other fundraisers where artists are asked to donate their work, we want to share proceeds of sales with the artists, 50% to artist and 50% to KAC. Artists are ask to submit smaller sized artwork, following a sizing guide, which will create an exciting and affordable Christmas shopping experience.



Artists are invited to contribute up to 10 pieces of art. There are over 350 pieces of art that gets put up on the walls of the KAC Galleries, at the Old Courthouse. Once open, (the community) visitors are able to purchase art right off the wall and walk away with their purchases then and there. This means there is a frenzy of people coming in early to get the perfect piece for them. Rest assured we will have a system in place to limit the number of people in the galleries at one time in accordance with BC’s Health directive. This event is great for artists to show their work and make sales during the holiday season



Various community members come to see what art is available. The art is made by local artists who are members of the Kamloops Arts Council.



Buying local promotes a healthy economy, and the holidays are one of the largest consumer times of the year. The community is able to come together and purchase gifts for their loved ones from local artists, supporting the Kamloops Arts Council at the same time.
