Art gallery fundraiser wants to create an appetite for art

Appetite for Art is the Kelowna Art Gallery’s most significant fundraising event of the year.

The Kelowna Art Gallery will host the Appetite for Art fundraiser and art auction Saturday, March 23, 2013, from 7 to 10 p.m.

Appetite for Art is the art gallery’s significant fundraising event of the year.

The proceeds from it support ongoing educational and children’s programming at the gallery.

These include our school tour program, Family Sundays, Art Adventures camps, art programs for the vision impaired, and CONNECT (an art program for adults with developmental disabilities).

Appetite for Art is a celebration of exceptional local cuisine set against a backdrop of works of art available to take home.

This gala evening brings together 15 culinary offerings from five of the region’s finest chefs. award-winning chef and sommelier Mark Filatow from Waterfront Wines, chef and owner Rod Butters from RauDZ Regional Table, and chef and partner Cameron Smith from Joy Road Catering, are just a few of the extraordinary talents behind the evening’s food offerings.

Five complementary drinks, carefully selected by premier local producers of wines, beer, and spirits including Tree Brewing Co., Mission Hill Estate Winery, Quails’ Gate Winery, Tinhorn Creek Winery and Okanagan Spirits will be paired with the chefs’ creations.

Upon arrival guests will be welcomed with a red-carpeted entrance and a sparkling wine reception.

Works by nearly forty different artists will be displayed throughout the large gallery space, encouraging guests to mingle and bid on their favourite works of art, all the while enjoying a sumptuous, roving feast.

The evening culminates in a live auction of selected works of art and highly valued non-art items such as getaways, tickets to premier events, and dining packages.

Tickets for Appetite for Art are $100 per person for Kelowna Art Gallery members and $120 for non-members.

They can be purchased directly from the art gallery, online at www.kelownaartgallery.com, or by calling 250-762-2226.
