Below you will see photos of the Red Tree Gallery as it looks this month. We hope you will come out of the cold into the warmth of Red Tree; sadly we're counting down. Those of you who read the Pender Post will have seen this already. It is reprinted here for those of you who don't know the latest gallery news.
Pender Islands Artisan Cooperative has operated the Red Tree Gallery at Hope Bay for over twelve years. Artists have kept the gallery open through busy summers and quiet winters, and visitors and Penderites alike have expressed tremendous appreciation for the visual feast and tranquil atmosphere that greets them as they walk through the doors. Thirty Pender artists have shown their work at the Red Tree over the years, and the work of a dozen guest artists has been featured over the last three summers.
Sadly we have taken the decision to close the gallery at the end of this year. However the Red Tree Cooperative will continue with a plan to mount one or more shows each year. Look for updates in the coming months. We will sign off with "Remembering" in November and a thank you to the community in December and hope that you will continue to visit the gallery between now and then. Thank you for your generous support over the years and for pointing your guests in our direction.

PIAC Chair for the Members
