I will be participating in a new art show that will hopefully become an annual fixture in the Okanagan. It runs the weekend of April 26th and 27th, Saturday, 11-5 and Sunday 11-4 at Mount Boucherie Secondary School, West Kelowna.
This will be the First Annual Okanagan Rotary Art Show. It is being organized by the Rotary Club of Westbank and Mount Boucherie Interact Club. Proceeds from the sale go to Hope Outreach in Kelowna to help homeless youth and Shelterbox Canada a Rotary supported charity that helps those caught in World Disasters.
I will have quite a number of paintings on display including new and older work. I hope you can drop by the show and have a chat!
There is a great art event coming up in Kelowna on May 10th. It is presented by the Central Okanagan Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
The event includes an juried Art Show in the Galleria of the Rotary Centre for the Arts running from May 1 to May 31. An Inspirational Symposium will be held on May 10th.
Morning Session - Guest Artists presentations followed by a panel style discussion with questions from the audience.
Noon - Award presentations for the Art Show.
Afternoon Session - Guest Artists will demonstrate their work in separate sessions. Dennis Weber, SFCA, will host an open critique for Symposium attendees who wish to bring in a painting.
This event is an excellent opportunity to interact with see how these professional artists create their paintings. I would highly recommend it to artists and art lovers alike.
Tickets: $25 each,available at the RCA Box Office at 421 Cawston Avenue, Kelowna, by phone 250-717-5304 or on-line at www.selectyourtickets.com (Recommended to anyone with an interest in the Visual Arts).
