Art installed at YLW

The Kelowna Art Gallery has unveiled a new art installation at its satellite gallery space in the Kelowna International Airport (YLW) terminal.

Travellers making their way towards the departure gates will now be greeted by a series of images of trees that create the illusion of movement.

For her installation at YLW titled Certain Movement, Kelowna-based artist Dawn Emerson has created a seven-paneled work using mixed media on sheets of mylar, exploring images of trees, which meander over the 40-foot-long wall in the well-wishing area just before the airport security gates.

Emerson was inspired by the digital work of Los Angeles-based artist Jennifer Steinkamp, which she saw installed at the Phoenix Art Museum when on a recent trip to Arizona.
