Here it is, the middle of summer. The traffic almost equals Vancouver, the days are long and hot and there is definite life in Oliver.
Between the concerts in the park, entertainment in the restaurants and visitors to the museum and the Oliver Art Gallery, we are an Okanagan paradise enriched with not only some of the finest wines, but also beauty and culture.
The Oliver Art Gallery is proud to feature artist Bonny Roberts A.F.C.A. during the month of August. If you still do not have a Bonny Roberts painting on your wall, here is your chance to browse through some of her finest works and pick one up and get some real Canadian culture.
Bonny is a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and probably the most affluent artist in the Oliver gallery.
She works from her home studio in Keremeos and paints in both realistic and abstract styles with a very strong impressionist colour palette.
She is a very popular teacher of painting composition and colour theory.
Her work is prized by collectors throughout Canada and the world. One must really see her work to get the overwhelming impression of appreciation.
Her show will continue during August, and there will be a “meet the artist reception” with the usual goodies on Friday, August 9 from 4-7 pm at the gallery.
The gallery is located at 6046 Main Street in Oliver and open Tuesday–Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm daily.
Looking to improve or start something new? Stay tuned for upcoming art classes in September.
