“Good artists copy; great artists steal”
This year, the Kelowna Art Gallery invited its members to take a deep dive into its Permanent Collection and choose one or several works of art as inspiration for their submission to the annual Members Exhibition. Members were encouraged to explore the Permanent Collection Database, which contains images and information about the nearly 1,000 works stored in the Gallery’s vaults. For more than 40 years, the Gallery has collected, conserved, and exhibited a variety of historical and contemporary art, and now it’s your turn to “steal” from the creations held in our vast collection.
A digital catalogue of the exhibition is now available, including works by members of the Kelowna Art Gallery, opposite to the works of art they referenced from the gallery’s permanent collection. Includes a foreword by Kelowna Art Gallery curator, Christine May.
