KELOWNA - The idea to celebrate the best in fresh, local cuisine, art, and drinks has been a successful one for the Kelowna Art Gallery – and it’s back!

On Saturday, April 22, 2017, 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.

This year, guests are invited to take a “walk in the woods” – embarking on a journey through the entire Gallery that is inspired by the natural world.

Upon arrival, guests will walk the green carpet with a glass of sparkling wine in hand, courtesy of beverage partner Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars.

Attendees can expect an evening spent sampling delicious culinary dishes and pairings, taking in lively pop-up performances by Kinshira Performance Troupe, while being swept away by the woodland atmosphere.

Works of art by over thirty local artists will on display in the Gallery’s largest exhibition space, including many unique works created specifically for Appetite for Art.

While guests mingle they are encouraged to bid on works of art that catch their eye, while they enjoy a roaming feast prepared by Waterfront Wines, Joy Road Catering, Okanagan College Culinary Arts Program, BNA, Nesters Market, 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 Craft Distillery.

“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.”

Chris Walker, host of Daybreak South on CBC Radio will be returning as emcee for the evening.

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, or by calling 250-762-2226.

The Kelowna Art Gallery would like to acknowledge the generous contributions by supporting sponsors, Farris, Vaughn, Wills & Murphy LLP, RBC PH&N Investment Counsel, August Luxury Motorcars, and KPMG. Media sponsors for the fundraiser are CBC Radio and The Daily Courier.
