Appetite for Art Fundraiser

The idea of combining a celebration of the best in local food, art, and drinks has been a successful one for the Kelowna Art Gallery – and it’s back! On Saturday, May 2, 2015, Walker Real Estate presents the Appetite for Art Fundraiser at the Kelowna Art Gallery. Proceeds from this important evening support ongoing children’s and educational programming at the Gallery.
Upon arrival, guests will walk the red carpet with a glass of sparkling wine in hand, courtesy of beverage partner Blue Mountain Vineyards.
Works of art by thirty artists will be displayed throughout the Gallery’s largest exhibition space, including twenty unique works created specifically for Appetite for Art. Guests will be encouraged to mingle and to purchase a work that catches their eye, while they enjoy a sumptuous, roving feast prepared by Waterfront Wines, Poppadoms – Taste India!, Joy Road Catering, Krafty Kitchen, and Sandrine, paired with beverage tastings from Mission Hill Family Estate, Tree Brewing Co., and Okanagan Spirits.

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years, I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, and others.

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014, I was elected to Kelowna City Council.
