Arts Quest profiles KPP

Corinne and Gary a.k.a. Arts Quest in NL

Arts Quest ( are travelling all across our great nation meeting a huge range of Canadian fine craft persons, fine artists ....and introducing them to the idea of selling their work on line via their (still under construction) e-commerce site/ full featured online marketing shop. Unlike etsy this will be an all and only Canadian site.

Arts Quest sounds like a very solid idea to us and we really encourage you to watch their videos of meeting new craftspeople from all across this diverse country of ours. We very much look forward to learning more about this project as it continues to develop and wish Arts Quest every possible success in their goal of creating the premier online craft/art market site for Canada.

Here is the link to the new Arts Quest blog/video entry on us: and do stay tuned to Arts Quest for more NL featured fine craft and art!!

Question: 150 craft/artist equals how many kilometers?????

Question for the day!

Our new 2012 gallery shop space features the work of over 150 craft-artists. Question: What if you wanted (in one giant shopping trip) to visit each and every one of our 150+ Canadian craft persons studio's , "How far would you travel?"

Well, if you happened to (conveniently) start driving from the west coast of Canada, where coincidentally our newest crafts person lives and finished your shopping trip here in the gallery at King's Point, many kilometers would it all end up to be?

Start the drum roll please.........................the answer is ...............................about 24,000 kms. (Considering you could drive half way around the world with that kind of really is a rather big distance.)

Sooo... why not make a very short journey down to our new craft gallery, just 12 km's off the TCH to King's Point  and see all 24,000 kilometers worth of fine Canadian Craft. (Just think, it'll be almost like saving 23, 988 kms!)
Happy travels to all.
