We're excited to launch our Winter exhibition featuring OKAC (Okanagan Artist Coalition). “Okanagan Rhapsody” Art Exhibition at Grizzli Winery is an exuberant expression of the beauty in the Okanagan area. Our artists create art from en plein air, from a photo they have taken, or from a memory. The wide variety of scenery, wildlife, and colours in the Okanagan are a rhapsody for artists. When we create, we apply our enthusiasm and interpretation of what we see and how it makes us feel. Every piece should invoke a feeling or memory with the viewer. Starting December 1st 2021.
Our previous art gallery instalment: ‘Tmixw- That Which Gives Life’, a Syilx Okanagan art instalment showcasing works from Suknaqinx artists David Wilson Sookinakin and Coralee Miller. The work of David Wilson explores traditional ways of Interior Salish People; An evolution of ancient art form using symbols to form unique style of Okanagan pictographs. Integrated within traditional circle forms, his art expresses stories and motifs; executed in brilliant acrylic colours.
Coralee is an Okanagan/syilx artist who portrays cultural pride through her paintings. She gains valuable inspiration from her family, community and oral stories of which are her favourite theme. Coralee uses art as a way of looking deeper into the syilx cultural values and bridging the moral lessons and values into a modern day understanding. Coralee focuses on the lessons of humour and the importance of humility through the ever boastful and immortal trickster spirit, senklip (coyote).
