Showcasing Canadian artists

An intimate tour will be given at Kelowna Art Gallery of its Canadian exhibition

Spend an afternoon viewing works of art by Emily Carr, Daphne Odjig, Bill Reid, members of the Group of Seven, with more than 70 Canadian artists on display.

On Saturday, Aug. 19, from 1 to 3 p.m., guest curator Roger H. Boulet will be leading visitors on an intimate tour of A Legacy of Canadian Art from Kelowna Collections at the Kelowna Art Gallery.

The exhibition aims to take viewers on a journey through the past 150 years of visual art in Canada and has a unique local connection – the 81 works in the show were borrowed from personal collections in the Kelowna area and complemented by select pieces from the gallery’s permanent collection, according to a gallery release.

Following the tour, a tea and social will be held. This event is free and open to the public. Those planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP in advance.

Boulet has had a long career as a curator and administrator in public art galleries, including posts at the Whyte Gallery in Banff, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Burnaby Art Gallery, and the Alberta Gallery of Art.

The Summerland resident has created exhibitions as a freelance curator for the Kamloops Art Gallery, the Kelowna Art Gallery, and the Glenbow Museum in Calgary.

The exhibition is on view until Oct. 15.
