Art Gallery/Craft Centre
The Village Art Gallery/Craft Centre strives to keep a stock of books relevant to Doukhobor culture and history, ranging from scholarly thesis to academic explorations to easily accessible history. The shop itself is a gallery of Doukhobor-related art work for viewing and sale.
We feature special exhibits in the gallery from time to time. This year we are presenting highlights of the previous year’s autochrome exhibition, prints for sale. Desired prints not on display can be viewed online and ordered from the Museum. (These Autochromes make splendid gift ideas!)
There are postcards and an archive of films relating to Doukhobors dating back to 1948. Non-competitive games and Doukhobor crafts such as hand-carved ladles and hand loomed rag rugs are also featured.
