Art Gallery walk-through

Join BC-based writer of fiction, criticism, and song Michael Turner for an informative and captivating exhibition walkthrough and conversation.
 
Turner will focus on A Legacy of Canadian Art from Kelowna Collections, guest curated by Roger H. Boulet, and is on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery through October 15th.
 
The exhibition aims to take viewers on a journey through the past 150 years of visual art in Canada and has a unique local connection–the 81 works in the show were borrowed from personal collections in the Kelowna area and complemented by select pieces from the Gallery’s permanent collection. Guests can expect to see historical works by artists such as Cornelius Krieghoff, Emily Carr, A. Y. Jackson, Kathleen Moir Morris, Lawren Harris, Sybil Andrews, Jack Bush, Jack Shadbolt, Daphne Odjig, Bill Reid, Jean Paul Riopelle, Takao Tanabe, and Alex Janvier, among many others.
 
This event is FREE and open to the public. It is being held as part of the Culture Days celebrations that happen across Canada.
 
Micahel Turner is the author of a number of books including Hard Core Logo (1993) and The Pornographer's Poem (1999). His reviews and features have appeared in magazines and journals such as Art 21, Canadian Art, Mousse and Modern Painters. He has contributed essays to many books, anthologies, and exhibition catalogues. His collaborations include writing poetry with Geoffrey Farmer (Broadsiding, VPL, 2010), and composing songs with cub, Dream Warriors, Fishbone, and Kinnie Starr.
 
A Legacy of Canadian Art from Kelowna Collections is on view until October 15, 2017. The exhibition is sponsored by Pushor Mitchell LLP and KF Aerospace, along with financial assistance from the Rogers’ Family Charitable Trust.
