Kelowna Art Gallery open for free on Canada Day

Free art on Canada Day

The Kelowna Art Gallery is inviting locals to take on an artsy experience free to the public this Canada Day.

"We love seeing people of all ages and skill levels expressing themselves through art," said education coordinator Sumi Ali. "Plus, we know children like things they can wave around, so this year we'll be making nature-inspired wind streamers."

Creation stations will be set up around the building for people interested in taking part as all materials will be supplied. This includes markers, construction paper, ribbons, scissors and glue.

Visitors will then have an opportunity to explore the exhibits, including From Warhol to Banksy. They'll get to see pop art works and ephemera from some of the art world's biggest names, including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Takashi Murakami, Banksy, and Mr. Brainwash.

There will be a chance to touch the art as natural sculptor Annabel Stanley's Circle of Life invites guests to move the spheres to curate their own sculpture.

The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on July 1.
