Everyone wins when purchasing local and B.C. art – that’s the message Inspired Arts and Gifts Inc. is promoting for its second anniversary celebration.

The Yarrow specialty shop, which has hosted over 100 local and B.C. based artists, is celebrating its second anniversary on April 14.

Some of the local talents featured have included Michael Hamilton of Clark Woodworks, Josh Jenkins Photography, Rustic Soap Co., Aromatica Teas, and Clearview Boutique.

“These are just a few of the wonderful artists that live in our community that have displays in our store,” said Trudi Martens, who owns the shop with her daughter Kayla Kraubner.

Other artists have come from Boston Bar, Osprey Lake and Vancouver Island, and have showcased pottery, jewelry, glass art, photography, body care and baby items.

“This store is giving artists an opportunity to showcase their talents in one location all year round,” said owner Trudi Martens.

And for the consumer, “they win by being able to purchase quality and unique items that are sure to please.”

The featured artist on April 14 will be Tara Elliott Designs, exhibiting her wedding and grad jewelry from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m..

There will also be samplings of local food items throughout the day.
