Have you got your tickets for the annual Garden Tour?

This Saturday, June 28 will be the ninth garden tour featuring 10 different gardens.

The tour is self-directed with a map and brief description of each garden. Tickets are available at The Beanery and at the Summerland Visitors Centre on Highway 97.

Not only will you be able to enjoy gardens that have been lovingly tended and designed by their owners the but the ticket proceeds will go to improve the lives of deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired as well as contributing to special needs in the community.

Summerland artist Irene Gray will have a selection of her pastels and oils at the Front Street Gallery from June 27 to July 10.

Her subject is mainly animals and local scenery.

Also in Penticton, the Artists of the South Okanagan-Similkameen have a show, Colour and Harmony, at the Shatford Centre from June 25 to July 30.

The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, 9908 Main St.
