Airport art exhibit unveiled

The Kelowna Art Gallery satellite art wall at the Kelowna International Airport has a new exhibit.

Travellers making their way towards the departure gates can view Jim Kalnin: Pulse, on view now through May 7.

This work by the Oyama-based Kalnin reflects his love of nature and outdoor life.

Kalnin says that his own recent travels have made him increasingly aware that we all live and must manage on this one planet.

With Pulse, Kalnin wants the departing passengers and visitors to the airport to consider their journeys on this planet we live on.

Originally from Manitoba, Kalnin has resided in the Okanagan Valley for the past 30 years and worked primarily as an art instructor.

Since retiring in 2009, he has exhibited his art extensively across B.C., and has authored two books, The Spirituality of Art (co-written with his wife Lois Huey-Heck) and The Spirituality of Nature.
