Kelowna Art Gallery challenges artists with new exhibition – Okanagan


The Kelowna Art Gallery challenged its members to reveal more than before in their latest exhibition, Undressed.

“This year’s theme may be a little different from what some of our members might be used to,” said Victoria Verge, Adult Education and Programming Coordinator at the Kelowna Art Gallery.

“We came up with the theme ‘Undressed’ and it really encouraged our members to explore the human form.”

Sixty-one of their members offer their own take on the human form in sculpture, canvas and more.

“There is so much talent in our community.

One of the featured artists, Pam Fennell, sculpted a tradeswoman.

“She has the tools she needs,” Fennell said.

“I didn’t want to show what she was building because I wanted to leave it to the person looking at the room and for them to be able to fill that part.”

Artist Kato Rempel plays with color and intimacy in his submissive piece, Luminous.

“This is something that we have really missed over the last year, so I found it very relevant to create this art during this time.”
