The Whole Story
Artful : The Gallery is the result of Kristina Campbell finding a home for all of her passions. Campbell is a multi-media artist, counsellor and facilitator. She thoroughly expresses her playful passion for life with creativity, compassion and courage.
When multi-media artist Kristina Campbell settled in the Comox Valley a few years ago, she began looking for exhibition spaces and didn’t find many that supported the particular needs of artists. Thus Artful : The Gallery was born in the initial chaotic days of the pandemic.
Who knew that it would be two years later before things returned to some semblance of normal, and thankfully, Artful : The Gallery is still here! The gallery focuses on contemporary emerging and mid-career artists, working in a variety of mediums and methods, providing a wide range of sizes and prices.
Artful : The Gallery
Campbell has created a gallery that is inspiring and definitely unpretentious. Oversized couches and chairs invite you to sit and enjoy the exhibition while you let the cares of the outside world fall away.
Whether you are an artist or an art lover, curious to
learn more about contemporary art, or looking
to purchase, Artful : The Gallery is Kristina Campbell’s offering of her enthusiasm and love of art to
build connection and community.
Artists at Artful
The gallery focuses on contemporary emerging and mid-career artists, working in a variety of mediums and methods, providing a wide range of sizes and prices. There are two main ways for artists to show work at Artful.
Solo artists or duos can book the gallery for a very reasonable exhibition fee, letting Artful : The Gallery manage all the complexities of an exhibition: curation, promotion, celebration, designing and hanging the show, sitting the gallery, managing sales, etc. Alternatively, Kristina Campbell curates exhibitions on particular themes, and artists' work can be considered for inclusion in her curated exhibitions. Stop by the gallery and say hello if you are curious to learn more.
