The Guerrilla Art Collective is excited to deck the walls of the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

It is just one of many opportunities get shopping out of the way and buy locally for Christmas.


“The first show was a last minute show,” said Guerrilla Collective founder, Amy Arsene.


“I wanted to expand my network and meet other artists so we could exchange ideas and keep motivated,” she continued.


“It’s been over  three years since we formed. We didn’t expect them to do so well,” she said.


“We usually invite guest artists to participate, but not for this show. Hopefully for the next one,” Arsene said.


 The Guerrilla art Collective’s show is Saturday, Nov. 20 from 6-9 p .m.


 It will feature works by Amy Arsene, Heidi Sherman, Russel Jensen, Dave Bullied and Keeley and Brandy Kulcsar.


“It’s a huge space, almost as big as the Owl Acoustic Lounge upstairs. Mel Dominguez and Steve Foord were nice enough to set it up and clean it for us. It’s a gorgeous brick wall with edifices. It will be a great place for the Collective to  display our works,” she said.

Due to personal reasons,the only collective member not participating in this show with be Oshan Ford who just had an exhibit at Casa.


“ I’ve seen everyone paint, but there is also multi disciplinary, textiles art, there’s photography and Brandy paints watercolours” she said.


“I can’t wait to see what everyone else has done,” she enthused.


“Our goal isn’t to make  money, but to show our work and learn,” she said, adding all pieces will be for sale.


“This is a chance to get to talk to the artists. All of the artists are available for commissions,” she said.


“ Support local. Don’t buy a print that there’s a million copies of. And even better you get to talk to the artist,” she said.


Christmas at Casa is also Nov. 19-20, plus there are new art openings at Casa. There is also an an indigenous Craft market  featuring First nations  crafters and entrepreneurs at Fort Whoop up from 1 -4 p.m., Nov. 19
