Art gallery gets upgrade

Kelowna’s Art Gallery will be getting more space, thanks to financial support from the Government of Canada.

The grant allows for a significant upgrade to the storage vault that houses over 800 pieces of art.

“The permanent collection is one of the cornerstones of the institution and all of the works of art are held in trust by the City of Kelowna for its citizens,” said Executive Director Nataley Nagy.

The vault is climate and environmentally controlled, which allows for the careful preservation and conservation of the work inside.

At this time, the majority of the pieces are by contemporary Canadian artists with a small number of historical Canadian pieces.

“This contribution to the Kelowna Art Gallery through the Canadian Heritage Museums Assistance Program will improve the preservation and additional security of a collection of over 800 valuable pieces of Canadian history and art,” said Stephen Fuhr, MP for Kelowna, Lake Country.
