If the shoe fits!

If the shoe fits!
The art journey continues for Peggie Collins.
What started over two years ago as a way to give back to the community through her art project, “100 Shoes for Mental Health”, has come full circle.

Did you know? The inaugural event for her 100 Shoes Project was a collaboration with the Junior Chamber International Association’s 80th anniversary celebration in Penticton at which Peggie did a live painting demonstration. The event theme was the “40’s” and Peggie painted a pair of shoes from that time frame. At the conclusion of the evening, Peggie’s painting was auctioned for a winning bid of $500. Peggie was overjoyed with that result! Since then Peggie displayed some of her 100 Shoe paintings in several businesses in downtown Penticton including Below the Ankle, Peaches Lingerie and Mi Amore Clothing Boutique. Also last spring she collaborated with The View Winery in Kelowna for another fun event which included an exhibition of her 100 Shoe paintings combined with a shoe and fashion show.
Now, she has joined forces once again with Below the Ankle footwear in Penticton.

Why?...because, why not! It is fun to collaborate with like minded businesses to create a unique shopping experience as a part of the Penticton Fall Artwalk, Saturday November 18, 11-4pm! To download map of participants https://www.pentictonartscouncil.com/fall-art-walk-2023

After all, "if the shoe fits!"…and it certainly does for Peggie and her paintings of 100 Shoes!
The shoe paintings will be on display and for sale along with Below the Ankle Footwear...So many beautiful styles from around the world!

Paintings are 4” x 4”, acrylic on paper, with mat and framed in shadow box ready to hang in your home. Many paintings have sold, but there is still a wide selection to choose from including paintings of uniquely displayed boots, runners, sports shoes, dancing shoes…

15% of sale proceeds will be donated to The Canadian Mental Health Association of BC!
Peggie would love your support for her 100 Shoe project, so please show up and enjoy her fun art show and while you are at it, try on a pair of Below the Ankle footwear!
