March 18, 2015 - 2:51 PM
Kelowna, BC: The idea of combining a celebration of the best in local food, art, and drinks has been a successful one for the Kelowna Art Gallery – and it’s back! On Saturday, May 2, 2015, Walker Real Estate presents the Appetite for Art Fundraiser at the Kelowna Art Gallery. Proceeds from this important evening support ongoing children’s and educational programming at the Gallery.
Upon arrival, guests will walk the red carpet with a glass of sparkling wine in hand, courtesy of beverage partner Blue Mountain Vineyards.
Works of art by thirty artists will be displayed throughout the Gallery’s largest exhibition space, including twenty unique works created specifically for Appetite for Art.
Guests will be encouraged to mingle and to purchase a work that catches their eye, while they enjoy a sumptuous, roving feast prepared by Waterfront Wines, Poppadoms – Taste India!, Joy Road Catering, Krafty Kitchen, and Sandrine, paired with beverage tastings from Mission Hill Family Estate, Tree Brewing Co., and Okanagan Spirits.
Attendees can expect a captivating evening inspired by this year’s old-time carnival theme. Think stilt-walkers, side shows, and wandering magicians plying their sleight of hand while guests enjoy the lively atmosphere.
“We are so pleased to have Walker Real Estate join us as our presenting sponsor this year. Their support allows us to put on an even bigger show for guests and raise even more for our children’s and educational programs,” 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, and other Gallery supporters.”
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 www.kelownaartgallery.com, or by calling 250-762-2226.
The Kelowna Art Gallery would also like to gratefully acknowledge the generous contributions by supporting sponsors, Farris, Vaughn, Wills & Murphy LLP, KPMG, and media sponsors, CBC Radio One, and The Daily Courier.
The emcee for Appetite for Art will be Chris Walker, host of Daybreak South on CBC Radio One.
