We are incredibly saddened to hear of artist Daphne Odjig’s passing this past weekend at the age of 97.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and and all of the staff at the Kelowna Art Gallery we would like to send our condolences to Daphne’s family and to her many, many friends.
We were privileged to have her attend and celebrate the exhibition, 7: Professional Native Indian Artists Inc. when it was on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery in the Fall of 2014.
The accompanying photo was taken at the opening reception.
