KELOWNA - The idea of combining a celebration of the best in local food, art, and drinks has been a successful one for the Kelowna Art Gallery – and it’s back!
On Saturday, April 9, 2016, Walker Real Estate presents the Appetite for Art Fundraiser at the Kelowna Art Gallery. Proceeds from this important evening support children’s and educational programming at the Gallery.
You’ll be shaken and stirred – guests can expect a captivating evening inspired by the classic James Bond films. Prepare for an evening spent savouring the finer things in life – martinis, fine wine, exceptional cuisine, fine art, as well as lively performances from Femme Fatale Burlesque, and local jazz chanteuse Anna Jacyszyn.
Upon arrival, guests will walk the red carpet with a glass of sparkling wine in hand, courtesy of beverage partner Blue Mountain Vineyards.
Works of art by thirty five artists will be for sale and displayed throughout the Gallery’s largest exhibition space, including twenty unique works created specifically for Appetite for Art.
Guests will be encouraged to mingle and to purchase a work that catches their eye, while they enjoy a plush, roaming feast prepared by Waterfront Wines, Central Kitchen + Bar, Joy Road Catering, Okanagan College Culinary Arts Program, and Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate. Menu items will be paired with beverage tastings from Mission Hill Family Estate, Tree Brewing Co., and Okanagan Spirits.
“We are so pleased to have Walker Real Estate join us once again as our presenting sponsor.” says Kelowna Art Gallery Executive Director, Nataley Nagy. “We absolutely could not hold this event without the tremendous support we’ve had from artists, local businesses, Board members, attendees, and other Gallery supporters.”
Tickets for the Appetite for Art Fundraiser are $120 per person, or four for $420. They can be purchased directly from the Gallery, online at kelownaartgallery.com, or by calling 250-762-2226.
