ARTS PALETTE: Art Walk shows works by local artists

You have until Aug. 31 to visit all or some of the 38 venues in Summerland that are displaying art by local artists during Art Walk.

Have you taken in Art Walk 2013?

If not you have until Aug. 31 to visit all or some of the 38 venues in Summerland that are displaying art by local artists.

Art Walk 2013 is an excellent opportunity to experience the original works of 37 local emerging and established artists.

You will find paintings, photography, jewellery, pottery, textiles, and sculpture on display throughout Summerland and the surrounding area in venues that  include restaurants, retail outlets, and wineries.

You can pick up an Art Walk brochure, which lists participating artists and venues, at the Art Gallery and Summerland Visitor’s Centre.  Look for the Art Walk decal on participating businesses.

It is exciting to know that our local theatrical company, Summerland Singers and Players, will be putting on the classic radio play, War of the Worlds, originally broadcast by Orson Welles, in October and that they are organizing a community read of A Christmas Carol on Dec. 6.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to watch a great stage performance.

The Many Hats Theatre Company are bringing the Norm Foster play, Skin Flick, to the Cannery Stage beginning on Sept. 5.

Don’t be afraid of the title. This hugely entertaining comedy won’t make you blush. (Though there is some language you might not want the kids to hear.)

Skin Flick is a delightful poke at the adult film industry as only Norm Foster could do it — a tender and affectionate comedy about five innocent people caught up in the process of making an adult film.

The laughs lie in the  shock and discomfort of the characters as they venture into uncharted waters.

There will be a reception opening night in the adjoining Opus Bistro which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew.

Reserved seat tickets are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or reserved by phone at 250-276-2170.
