Local artist and event organizer Jan Rankin is once again bringing the arts community and public together this weekend (Nov. 5 and 6) for a spectacular family-friendly show.
The fourth annual For the Love of Art Show and Sale features a wide range of art and artisanal items from 30 of Delta’s finest creators.
Over the two days, visitors are encouraged to browse two floors of the cedar barn where they can meet the artists, enjoy live music, on-site food, door prizes, and partake in a scavenger hunt for the whole family and more.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days with free admission and parking.
Since the show’s first run in 2018, Rankin’s mission and passion has been to bring together the diverse talent of artists and artisans in the Ladner and Tsawwassen area with art lovers and collectors. The yearly show is gently juried and carefully curated and designed to support a broad variety of fine artists and artisans.
“Chat with the artists, learn more about their artwork and creative process, and just take in the magical setting of Harris Barn, the perfect backdrop,” explains Rankin.
Shop local this holiday season. The Harris Barn is a unique opportunity to view artwork from local artists.
Guests will appreciate the variety of exquisite, handcrafted items at affordable prices. There is something for everyone.
“Honestly, this show just gets better every year, attracting a wide audience from near and far who want to experience art in South Delta,” added Rankin. “The enthusiasm and energy from the community is so wonderful to see.”
Be sure to catch headliner music act Rachel Chatoor and musical guests Sam Wallace and Zoe Rapos.
The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 61 will also be on site fundraising for their 2022 Poppy Campaign.
Save the dates and plan your own informal South Delta art crawl this weekend.
