Gallery hosts annual fundraiser

Appetite for Art will be held April 22 at the Kelowna Art Gallery

The idea to celebrate the best in fresh, local cuisine, art, and drinks has been a successful one for the Kelowna Art Gallery.

On Saturday, April 22 Walker Real Estate presents the Appetite for Art fundraiser at the Kelowna Art Gallery. Proceeds from this important evening support children’s and educational programming at the gallery.

This year, guests are invited to take a walk in the woods – embarking on a journey through the entire gallery that is inspired by the natural world.

“We are so pleased to have Walker Real Estate join us once again as our presenting sponsor,” said gallery executive director, Nataley Nagy. “We absolutely could not hold this event without the tremendous support we’ve had from artists, local businesses, Board members, attendees, and other gallery supporters.”

Upon arrival, guests will walk the green carpet with a glass of sparkling wine in hand, courtesy of beverage partner Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars.

Attendees can expect an evening spent sampling delicious culinary dishes and pairings, taking in lively pop-up performances by Kinshira Performance Troupe, while being swept away by the woodland atmosphere.

Works of art by more than thirty local artists will on display in the gallery’s largest exhibition space, including many unique works created specifically for Appetite for Art.

While guests mingle they are encouraged to bid on works of art that catch their eye, while they enjoy a roaming feast prepared by Waterfront Wines, Joy Road Catering, Okanagan College Culinary Arts Program, BNA, Nesters Market, and Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate. Menu items will be paired with beverage tastings from Mission Hill Family Estate, Tree Brewing Co., and Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery.

Tickets for the Appetite for Art Fundraiser are $120 per person, or four for $420. They can be purchased directly from the gallery online, or by calling 250-762-2226.
