Description

This catalogue accompanied an exhibition that drew from the permanent collection to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Kelowna Art Gallery. It was organized by curator Liz Wylie, who wrote the main essay. Other short texts were written on specific works by community members, and a special contribution on the history of art and artists in modern Kelowna by Carolyn MacHardy is included. Every work in the show is reproduced in colour and in large format. The community contributions give a sense of the real relationships the residents have with art in the collection. The selected works were grouped into thematic clusters, which is how the book has been organized as well. Each of these is introduced with a text by Liz Wylie, which also discusses each work of art. This is a great go-to volume to see work by many artists working in the city and region of Kelowna, both in the past and in the contemporary period. However, nationally-known artists are included as well, for example, Guido Molinari, Alan Wood, Jack Shadbolt, Christos Dikeakos, Takao Tanabe, Greg Murdock, Margaret Priest, and Evan Penny.
