Portraiture at KAG

Ninety local artists answered the call to celebrate the art of portraiture for this year’s annual members’ exhibition at the Kelowna Art Gallery. The group show is entitled Encounters and submissions in a wide variety of media were welcomed, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, mixed media, and digital media.

The works range dramatically throughout the space. One piece by Patty Leinemann appears to be the metal frames from a pair of different sized suitcases. Entitled Mom & Dad, the work is a consideration of the artist’s parents and their immigration experience.

Another example by Cheryl Arnouse was composed using a variety of different coffees and teas which she dripped on to paper to create a portrait she calls Perspective on Homelessness, over Coffee & Tea. Arnouse chose to create a portrait of a man she met through the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Centre. His compelling story and hardships resonated strongly with her and the resulting work is a tribute to his courage and strength.

The exhibition is on view in the Gallery’s Front project space from December 2, 2017 to February 3, 2018. This exhibition space is free and open to the public during Gallery hours of operation.

A digital publication will be produced to accompany Encounters with images of each work along with information about the artist and the piece. The publication will be available on an iPad installed in the exhibition space at the Gallery, or online via the Kelowna Art Gallery’s website.

For more information about membership at the Kelowna Art Gallery, please call the Gallery at 250-762-2226, or visit online at www.kelownaartgallery.com.
