Come get festive and shop local at The Polygon Gallery’s Holiday Shop. An annual tradition, the gallery’s main floor will be beautifully decorated and carefully curated with unique gifts by independent makers and artists.
Returning this year is Little Mountain Shop’s Holiday Pop-Up, which features an all-Canadian lineup of mostly local, women-led, BIPOC makers and creatives. With dozens of vendors, this Pop-Up is the go-to destination for sustainably minded products by sought-after makers this holiday season.
Meet the Maker events take place every weekend from 11am-4pm. These weekly socials will highlight a local guest vendor, and customers will be able to enjoy demos, a photobooth, and the festive atmosphere before taking in what’s on view in the Gallery.
Two striking exhibitions will be on view at The Polygon throughout the Holidays as well: Home Sweet Home, a solo exhibition by Vancouver artist Rydel Cerezo (on now until Jan 9), and The Lind Prize 2022, The Gallery’s annual showcase of vital emerging artists from across the province (opening Dec 10).
