Lake Country Art Gallery members show

Juried selection of art opens Saturday, March 5.

The Lake Country Art Gallery is busy preparing for the opening of its second annual Members Show.

Anyone who is a member of the gallery was invited to submit one or two pieces of artwork in any media for consideration. The artwork was then blind juried by three Okanagan artists—Liz Wylie from the Kelowna Art Gallery, Lubos Culen from the Vernon Art Gallery, and Petrina McNeill from the Lake Country Art Gallery.

The jurors were impressed with the diversity of styles and abilities evident in the works.

“The response to the call for artists was very exciting,” said curator June Seed. “There were 112 diverse and interesting works submitted, and the jury had the difficult task of reducing that number by more than half, due to the fact that our gallery is small and unable to accommodate a larger number of works. We certainly encourage all of our members to submit work again next February and also for our small works members exhibit in December.”

The exhibit will be open to visitors on Saturday March 5 from 11am-3pm with the Opening Reception held from 3pm-6pm. Everyone is invited to attend the reception and meet many of the artists and jurors. The exhibit will be on display at the gallery until Sunday April 17. Many of the works are for sale.

Admission to the Lake Country Public Art Gallery is free. Donations are gratefully accepted and are used to support exhibitions and events. Gallery hours are Wednesday from 10am to 8pm, Thursday & Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturday & Sunday from 11am to 3pm

For more information please visit the Gallery at 10356A Bottom Wood Lake Rd, email or call 250-766-1299.
