Art in the Barn returns

Have a sweet holiday shopping experience at the fifth annual "Art in the Barn" event to be held at Campbell's Gold Honey Farm and Meadery

Have a sweet holiday shopping experience at the fifth annual “Art in the Barn” event to be held at Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm and Meadery.

Admission to the event is free, with unique creations from local artisans under one roof, November 3-4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

“Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm & Meadery, is an active retail and agri-business operation which is committed to foster agri-education and hold periodic community events,” says Judy Campbell, Production Manager.

“Building community, supporting local artisans, and integrating these with the farm operation is our version of a staycation, where the community buys local and all benefit.”

“This year the farm welcomes Aldergrove artist Phyllis Sabean,” says Samantha Kerr, event organizer. “Phyllis enjoys working with all types of art mediums, specializing in gourd art. She has learned many different ways of crafting the gourds, including carving, pyrography, drawing and painting. Using fabrics and coloured oxides Phyllis also makes sculptures and a variety of other wonderful fibre art creations.”

This is a great pre-Christmas shopping opportunity and with such variety, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy. The Abbotsford Area Gogos will also be in attendance this year, raising funds for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, which is an HIV/AIDS response in Africa.

“The first 25 guests to visit the artists each day will receive a 10 per cent off coupon to be used in the store during the event weekend,” says Campbell. “The first visitor to the event each day will win a pair of tickets for the annual Holly and the Ivy Christmas Home Tour, sponsored by the Abbotsford-Matsqui Rotary Club. Also, we have a draw for a basket of honey and beehive products to take place on Sunday.”

Campbell’s farm is located at 2595 Lefeuvre Road in Aldergrove.
