PENTICTON -- Main Street lights up tonight with the launch of Penticton’s first projection art show.
Projection art shows have lit up buildings all over the world with shows of various magnitudes, but all with the goal of entertaining audiences and showcasing art.
The show’s organizer, Tarik Sayeed, has chosen local Penticton artists to feature in the first projection art show the Okanagan has ever seen. The lights go up along the 200 block of Main Street at 6 p.m. tonight and will stay on until 7:30 p.m. The show continues Wednesday through Friday, at the same time and place.
Laura Morrow, one of the featured artists, is excited to see all the different styles of artwork come together and hopes that other artists get on board for future shows. The texture from the buildings will distort the images, which Sayeed has infused with moving images -- elements that Morrow said will take the show to another level.
“This is such an innovative activity for such a small town like Penticton,” she said. And the show will only get better, especially in the summer.
Morrow gets inspiration for her canvas paintings from the scenic views of the Okanagan valley during summer. She chose to showcase her most recent and warmest paintings in hopes of brightening up the winter scene.
Other featured artists include Sarah Fahey of Two-faced Productions, and Jessy Rosner of SunCity.
