With Christmas around the corner, it’s the time of year where everyone is thinking of what to give important people in their lives, and everyone is struggling to find that perfect gift. Patricia Doyle, the operator of Bella Vista Glass, believes in the good feelings produced from “buying art created by someone, rather than something,” and the positive effects this has on our local economy. “When you support a local artist, you are not only giving back to your community, but you are also participating in a simple act of goodwill, which is something everyone wants to feel, especially this time of year.” Artsolutely is constantly changing and growing, establishing itself as a place known for its high-quality works of art, it’s warm, inviting atmosphere, and a place where some of the most talented artists in the North Okanagan come together.
