KELOWNA - The Kelowna Art Gallery is looking for works by local artists to include in the upcoming annual members’ exhibition, entitled Drawn Together.

Artists interested in participating are asked to explore the concept and definition of drawing through their media of choice, so painting, sculpture, photography, and new media are encouraged. To use one example, consider that the term photograph actually stems from two Greek words, phos, meaning “light,” and graphê, meaning “drawing or writing.” Together the words literally mean “drawing with light.” So artists are encouraged to get creative with how they choose to incorporate the theme of the exhibition in their work – perhaps drawing with paint on a printmaking plate, or drawing in space when working in sculpture. All that said, traditional approaches to drawing are also welcome.

Interested artists will need to sign up for this exhibition by no later than Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016. Works will not need to be dropped off until Sunday, Nov. 6.

Participation in Drawn Together is open to all members of the Kelowna Art Gallery, including new members. More information about membership and registration can be found on the Gallery’s website.

Drawn Together will be on view in The Front project space of the Gallery from Nov. 15, 2016 to Feb. 5, 2017. A reception to celebrate the exhibition and artists will be held on Friday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is located at 1315 Water Street in the heart of the Cultural District in downtown Kelowna.

For hours of operation, or more information about current exhibitions and programs, please contact the Gallery by calling 250-762-2226, or visit their website.
