The Okanagan School of the Arts is inviting the public to its first exhibit opening of 2020.

Join the school at the Shatford Centre in Penticton, Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to see the exhibit based around the theme “Abstracted Ideas.”

“We are showcasing works that do not attempt to accurately depict visual reality, but instead use shapes, colours, and forms to achieve an effect,” said Kim Palmer, executive director, in a press release.

“We’ve had an outstanding response to this call,” she said in the release. “The work we’ve received is incredibly colourful and vibrant – I’m confident that visitors will be delighted by this beautiful and memorable exhibit.”

Light refreshments will be served at the opening, and everyone is welcome.

Established in 1960, the Okanagan School of the Arts is one of the longest-running schools of its kind in Canada. The OSA offers a variety of performing and visual arts courses for students of all ages and stages of development and hosts periodic art exhibitions.

More information about the OSA can be found online.
