BOOM! HERE IT IS!
Art Gallery Kimberley's first ever newsletter straight into your inbox. Thank you all so much for signing up and following us on this great adventure. Let's go!
WHAT HAPPENED SO FAR?
After "Tumbled Earth" moved across the street and just before "Vicious Cycle" - the coin laundry - closed, I made a short 'before' video of The Laundromat from the commercial laundry space. Check it out on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/wNKgNdAqq5w.
The renos were paused for the Christmas Pop-up Art Market that opened on November 24, 2021. Twenty-five adventurous local artists had their artwork on display at the pop-up art market until the end of 2021. Approximately 200-250 visitors per week came through the pop-up art market to get inspired and buy their Christmas gifts. It's amazing how great artwork can transform a space!
Check out this incredible one-line drawing booklet artist Rico made of the Christmas Pop-up Art Market! There is a short video of the initial drawing before it was filled in with watercolour on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/WAP-CGfZqMA.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?
Now it is time to close 'the curtains' again and finish the renovations. We plan to be able to welcome you to Art Gallery Kimberley at The Laundromat in April. The creation of our website and web shop will start at the end of January. I can't wait to introduce you to the talented artists that will have some of their artwork in the art gallery and our web shop. We will keep you posted on the progress. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

LAUNDROMAT OR ART GALLERY?
We are a commercial art gallery right in the heart of Kimberley BC’s revitalized, historic downtown pedestrian area "The Platzl". Since our building housed laundry facilities for approximately 50 years, we decided to keep calling it “The Laundromat” with a little nod to Andy Warhol's studio “The Factory”, hence the pop-art logo design.
Art Gallery Kimberley facilitates art; represents original artwork and artists that we’re excited about; and builds meaningful and lasting relationships with artists, art collectors, and the community. We feature original fine, functional, and decorative art by Canadian artists while specializing in nature, wildlife, and small town living in the Kootenays. It is our passion to inspire, empower, and grow the local art community.
Art Gallery Kimberley is a good place to be for seasoned art lovers, art collectors, and those looking to purchase their first original piece of art. We offer fine, functional, and decorative artwork that matches every taste and style. With monthly changing exhibitions and regular visual, performing, and literary arts events, there are always new and exciting experiences to enjoy for all. We strongly believe that art is for everyone; we talk about art like you talk about your favourite music!
Art Gallery Kimberley offers many payment options, including a convenient lay-away plan, and we ship world-wide. We also offer consulting services to private and corporate clients; let us help you find the perfect art piece for your space.
The Laundromat is also a great space to hold your meeting, reception, workshop, and other events. Please contact us for availability at: email@example.com.
