KAMLOOPS - From Feb. 28 to March 8, more than 115 area artists ages 10 to 80 will reveal their latest creations at KAMLOOPS ARTS COUNCIL'S ART EXPOSED. Every nook and cranny at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre will be filled with more than 200 works of local art. Paintings, drawings, fibre art, carvings, clay works, photography, glass and more will be on display, for sale and for rent.
Unique to Kamloops, Art Exposed is an open show showcasing the work of artists of all levels and all ages - youth to senior. All residents of the Thompson Nicola Regional District were invited to submit artwork in any medium - 2D and 3D. This year's jurors are Lake Country artist, curator and art consultant Katie Brennan; local carver and graphic artist Vaughn Warren; and local artist / Kamloops Art Gallery public programs coordinator Emily Hope.
Meet the artists at the opening reception, which takes place Friday, Feb. 27, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre. All are welcome; prizes will be awarded at 8 p.m.
Can't make the opening? Art Exposed runs Feb. 28 to March 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is by donation.
New this year, the Kamloops Arts Council is launching a three-month art rental pilot project. Selected works displayed at the exhibition will be available for sale and rent. Upload photos of your lackluster workspace to the KAC's "Boring Office Contest" page on Facebook by 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 23 for a chance to win three months' free rental of artwork for your workspace!
