May 10 – July 27, 2008
The Kelowna Art Gallery is excited and pleased to be the first touring venue for the Pop Prints exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Pop Art movement began in both Britain and the USA in the early 1960s and had its influence on Canadian artists as well. Due to the accessible nature of its themes and images, the Pop Art movement is still widely known today, some forty years after its heyday. This show of works in printmaking media by some of the stars of Pop gives viewers the chance to reevaluate this short-lived, but highly influential moment.
Pop Prints is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery with the generous support of Spectra Energy.
