Deck the Halls with Effusion Art Gallery

Buy an ornament, raise money for the Westside Legacy Trail

Submitted by Effusion Art Gallery

The Effusion Art Gallery + Glass Studio is excited to partner with the Westside Legacy Trail once again for their annual Christmas tree ornament sale, and new this year is an in-house silent auction. The Westside Legacy Trail is a multi-recreational, human powered paved trail linking Invermere to Fairmont Hot Springs where locals and visitors can walk, run, bike, or rollerblade safely off of the busy Westside Road. “It’s a great asset in the community and to see this grow for people to enjoy,” explains the gallery owner Heather Cuell.

Each year, the gallery raises funds for a local charity or community non-profit group during the holiday season. In recent years, Ms. Cuell has asked her diverse Canadian artists to create original, hand-painted Christmas tree ornaments in a dazzling array of styles and colours. There is always a wide variety of ornament designs, personalities, and styles, so there is sure to be something to suit everyone.

The ornaments will trim Effusion’s tree at the same time as Light Up Night, November 18th, and will be available for purchase until December 31st or until they are sold out, whichever comes first. These unique ornaments make for a meaningful personal or corporate gift, beautiful stocking stuffers, or decorative holiday accessories. They are very popular locally, with many annual collectors, and always sell-out quickly.

Additionally, the gallery will be hosting an in-house silent auction November 18th to December 31st for a gift certificate valued at $1,000 that the highest bidder can use towards the Effusion artwork of their choice. Like the ornaments, 100% of the proceeds of the silent auction will benefit the Westside Legacy Trail. Simply stop by Effusion Art Gallery to place your bid, and support the Legacy Trail. To take a peek at the wide array of jewelry, paintings, sculptures, and cast glass available please go to: www.effusionartgallery.com.

The Westside Legacy Trail and Effusion will also be teaming up for the Light Up event. Together, they will be offering a family-friendly cozy fire and hot chocolate in Effusion’s courtyard to warm up, learn more about the trail, and enjoy the parade. Since Effusion is located on main street, it is the prime location to take a break from shopping, warm up by the fire with hot chocolate, visit with friends, and take in the parade. The fun starts at 1:00 pm on Saturday November 18th. Effusion will be open until 8:00 pm.

To check out the ornaments and to place your silent auction bid, just drop by Effusion, located on Invermere’s main street, located at 1033 7th Avenue.
