From Culture Days to culture month. Last weekend was officially designated as Culture Days by the federal government and we are now beginning a month full of cultural events.

There is a digital art showing featuring works by Summerland and other Okanagan digital artists that has opened at Little Straw Vineyard in West Kelowna. Digital Autumn, as the show is called, will be at the winery until Nov. 29.

Closer to home, Banners Reborn and Myths Fables and Fairytales opens Oct. 3 at the Summerland Art Gallery.

These shows feature works by the a variety of artists who have turned old street banners into new works of art as well as works by the Summerland Potters Guild.

Across the lake the Naramata Arts Studio is holding its 15th Annual Show and Sale from Oct. 3 to 9 in the Naramata Community Church Hall.

Regular daily hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exception is this Sunday, Oct. 6 when the hours will be noon to 6 p.m.

Next up is the Penticton Art Gallery’s Kitchen Stove Film Series. Their next film, No, is being shown Thursday, Oct. 17 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Landmark 7 Cinema. This gripping historical drama recounts the events leading up to the national plebiscite on Dictator Augusto Pinochet’s political future in 1988 Chile.  Pre-purchased tickets are available at the Penticton Art Gallery.  Limited single tickets may be available at the door.

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra will be in Penticton on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Cleland Theatre.

They will be opening this season with music to lift the human spirit from three composers at the height of their creative power.

Beautiful depictions of nature, breathtaking melodies, a virtuoso duet and a musical ride that inspired the lone ranger to action, all add up to a stellar opening.

Back home in Summerland The Contenders (Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard) will be at Centre Stage Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. for their 13th annual Tour of the Okanagan/Interior.

Additional information on all these events can be found on the Summerland Community Art Council’s website and Facebook page.
