Welcome to ArtVine
ArtVine Supports The Arts
Karen Griggs started BeadTrails about 10 years ago, based on the principle “where there’s a bead, there’s a story.” From bailing beads in the back of the Summerland Visitor Center to having a bead in almost 200 communities throughout central BC, BeadTrails has had quite the experience. Based off that success, ArtVine was born to support other creatives in the Okanagan community. ArtVine is eager to stand on its own as a cooperative storefront and workshop space, both on the ground and on the digital frontier.
Doing Our Part
The Bead Trails and ArtVine storefront is committed to balancing Covid-19 safety precautions and maintaining a welcoming environment for overall creative wellness. The space is quite large, allowing for appropriate social-distancing. The bright arrows create a seamless flow of movement around the store. Everything in store is regularly cleaned and there is a limit of 8 people in the store during regular shop hours. Masks are also mandatory per the Public Health Order of November 20th, 2020.
Masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies are available for purchase as well.
