Artscape is a community art program that has provided exhibition opportunities to local artists since 1995. With exhibitions currently in 8 locations throughout Kelowna, this season Artscape introduced an exciting exhibition opportunity for youth at the Interior Health Community Health and Services Centre in downtown Kelowna.
The public halls that connect reception areas on the second floor of Interior Health at 505 Doyle Avenue features a rotating exhibition of local high school aged artists from School District 23. The summer exhibition presents work by a selection of young artists from Okanagan Mission - OKM and Kelowna Secondary School. Each young artist has developed an individual style that reflects their passion for art and life and with over 50 works on display, viewers get a taste of the diverse interests of these up and coming artists.
The new partnership between Interior Health and the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan was commemorated with an opening reception for the exhibition on July 6th. Widely attended by Interior Health staff, students and their families, as well as community members, visitors called the exhibition “truly fantastic”.
Other Artscape locations this season feature both emerging and established artists, in venues across the city. Among these is the Kelowna Community Theater, and three branches of the Okanagan Regional Library. For a full list of artists and venues, visit artsco.ca.
