About Our Shop
The Shuswap Artisans Market started as a dream of Debbie Reeves and Rose Collin. Their goal was to create and provide Art for the Community and a Community for Artists.
It came to life in the spring of 2017 when they opened the first artist run market in Sorrento. It was a great success and so with the support of all the artists involved they decided to open their shop year round.
Their purpose continues to be to support the vibrant community of artists in the Shuswap region by providing an opportunity to exhibit and sell regional art and to enhance professional development among artists.
Having the store front has proven to be a great way for artists to connect with their community and the community to have access to the artists among them.
The Arts Council for the South Shuswap was a vital connection in getting our little shop up and running by providing a small grant to get us started with signage and other sundry items needed to run a retail outlet. Our connection remains a strong one.
Funding From Shuswap Community Foundation
