April 14 to June 17, 2018
For the Kelowna Art Gallery’s 32nd annual Art in Action exhibition, young artists were asked to create works inspired by nature. The natural environment encompasses the interaction of all living species, climate, weather, and natural resources. It is important that youth in our community have the ability and disposition to consider the interdependence of people with each other and the natural environment. Learning this kind of social responsibility will help students to become active, caring, and responsible members of society. We hope that this theme will teach students that ideas and beliefs within a work of art have the power to affect change.
The Art in Action exhibition celebrates the creativity and artistic accomplishments of youth in our community. This exhibition showcases over 140 works of art created by students from Central Okanagan Public Schools. Works in this exhibition include drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, video, and photography.
Thursday, May 3, 6 to 8 pm
This is a free event, and open to the public.
