An event that is part of the centennial exhibit
"Renaissance People In A Renaissance Town ~ celebrating 100 Years of Creativity in Penticton",
 at the Penticton Museum and Archives
For more information about Penticton's Centennial see http://www.penticton.ca/centennial/index.htm

Please Note:  Artists may still submit images they have painted of  Penticton and they will be added to the Penticton100 gallery even if they weren't completed en plein air or by our initial deadlines as this is an ongoing Centennial project!  Let's all see how Penticton has inspired us!

Artists are asked to join together to find their most inspiring location in Penticton
and to get out and create a piece of art en plein air that reflects their feelings for this great town.
They are then asked to submit the image to the Penticton100 web gallery at www.WorldArtTours.net and participate in the Open Studio Tour at the Penticton Museum and Archive

Penticton artist, Angie Roth McIntosh will place digital images of art reflecting inspiring painting locations in Penticton in this celebratory Penticton100 Gallery. This will allow viewers from around world to see the creativity of our local artists and the beauty of our community.  Artists participating in this event are also requested to join in the South Okanagan Open Studio Tours being held 10 AM-5 PM Friday and Saturday July 25, 26 at the Penticton Museum.  Visual artists are asked to paint during the time that they are participating in the Open Studio Tours.

As part of the centennial exhibit "Renaissance People In A Renaissance Town ~ celebrating 100 Years of Creativity in Penticton", the Penticton Museum and Archives will be a galleria location included in the South Okanagan Open Studio Tours coordinated and advertised by the Okanagan Arts Magazine and Arts Council of the Central Okanagan in Kelowna.

These South Okanagan Open Studio days will be 10 AM-5 PM Friday and Saturday July 25, 26 in the courtyard, museum gallery, (and possibly auditorium, am checking availability).
The intention of this event is to share in and inspire the expression of Creativity and the Creative Spirit. By sharing in this way we can assist to develop the understanding and appreciation of the creative process, the artist's life-style and the creative energy that sparks the life-force within each/all of us human-beings.
This opportunity is open to artists and creators of the South Okanagan working in all genres at all stages of development - emerging to professional (potters, sculptors, sketchers, painters, writers, dancers, actors, musicians) who like to work in the public eye. It is an event for creators and artists to share their creative process and their work. All types of expression are invited to participate throughout both days. There is no charge for your participation and there will be opportunity to sell and promote your work as well. Participants in these studio days will also have an opportunity to be included in a South Okanagan Similkameen Arts/Cultural Resource Directory slated for production and printing later this year.
If you are interested, please let us know what times in the two days work for you, and what type of expression you would like to share - from half day to full day to both days.
Once we have a sense of the level of interest, we will develop the overall schedule, space availability and locations for individual participants.
Please send an email message of your interest to this address as soon as possible and not later than Friday July 11.
In addition to this opportunity, there are other ways for Penticton artists to participate in this exhibit, please contact us at OSA to learn more.
