Free Admission + Art Activities on Canada Day

What: Free Admission + Family Art Activities
When: July 1, 2023, 10 am – 4 pm
Who: Everyone Welcome!

Families are invited to construct their own Orchard Fruit Pinwheel at one of the “creation stations” set up outside of the Gallery. Stop by and say hello to our friendly Summer Program Assistants Tori and Faith, who will be on hand to help people get started.

Will your pinwheel be a bold bright red like a spartan apple or cherry? Or, will it be inspired by a peach, pear, plum, apricot, or other deliciously vibrant Okanagan fruit?

All materials will be supplied, including markers, construction paper, straws, scissors, and thumbtacks.

Inside the Gallery, participants can create their own Beaded Firework Ring, or choose from other self-guided art activities, which will be available in the Art Lab.

Admission is FREE so be sure to explore the four different exhibitions, including Takao Tanabe: Printmaker, which will be open for its very first day.

The exhibitions and activities will run from 10 am to 4 pm on Canada Day.

Those interested in making an Orchard Fruit Pinwheel are encouraged to come early as supplies are limited.


Admission to all four exhibition spaces will be FREE!
Don’t miss your chance to see Takao Tanabe: Printmaker.
