Encounters

Annual Members’ Exhibition
December 2, 2017 to February 3, 2018

Installation view of the 2016 members’ exhibition, Drawn Together.

Portraiture is an opportunity to observe humanity. By taking a sustained look at ourselves, we are able to examine who we are, reflect on what we’ve become and consider who we aspire to be. Portraits do not merely record someone’s features, but say something about who they are by offering a sense of their inner essence.

For this year’s members’ exhibition, the Kelowna Art Gallery invites artists to celebrate the art of portraiture. Members are encouraged to approach this theme through their own artistic practices. All mediums and methods including traditional, abstract and conceptual portraiture are encouraged.

By sharing notions of who we are, this exhibition hopes to form a sense of connection and empathy that transcend time and place.

Submission Guidelines:

  • All participating artists must be current members of the Kelowna Art Gallery at the time of registration.
  • Only one submission per artist.
  • There are no size restrictions, however we ask that you please contact us if your piece is larger than 36 inches in height or width.
  • All artworks must be ready to hang with appropriate hardware.
