All in the Family
Celebrate Culture Days at the Kelowna Art Gallery with a fun and FREE Family Sunday activity! This Sunday activity explores the legacy of the late artist Daphne Odjig, whose work is currently on view in the Gallery’s Daphne Odjig 100 exhibition. Little artists will paint family portraits inspired by Odjig’s vibrant use of colours and bold black outlines using a selection of acrylic paints and a variety of brushes. Gallery staff will be on hand to assist with the art activity and current exhibitions will be free and open for visitors to explore.
