ARTS PALETTE: Art Walk will feature original pieces

The Summerland Community Arts Council invites you Art Walk 2013.

The Summerland Community Arts Council invites you Art Walk 2013.   Come and experience the original works of local emerging and established artists on display throughout Summerland and the surrounding area.

The work showcased over the event will include paintings, photography, jewellery, pottery, textiles, and sculpture.

Art Walk features 37 artists in 38 venues including restaurants, retail outlets, and wineries throughout Summerland.

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

Art Walk is not just an opportunity to view many different types of art it is also an opportunity to drop into a wide range of businesses that you might not otherwise visit.

In addition to Art Walk there are a number of new shows opening in August.

Art Happening opens August 2 at the Shatford Centre.

The exhibiting artists are all members of the Federation of Canadian Artists and you will find a wide range of media on view: watercolours, oils, encaustics, acrylics and mixed media among them.

Barb Hofer will be having a solo show at Leir House beginning Aug. 2,  featuring a tribute to trees. Branching Out is a mixed-media collection of her paintings using watercolour, acrylic, collage, and lately, encaustic.

Memorial Park will come alive with the sounds of Shakespeare on Aug. 1 and 2 as the Penticton Chamber Theatre offers a brand-new production of Much Ado About Nothing in the park beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets can be picked up at the Sweet Tooth Cafe on Victoria Road or at the park.

The delightful Much Ado about Nothing is one of the Bard’s most cherished comedies, sparkling in every sense of the word.

Two couples headline the play: Benedick/Beatrice, accidental tourists of love who think they are “too wise to woo peaceably” and Claudio/Hero, for whom “silence is the perfect herald of joy” until they start listening to the wrong people.

Add in lumbering malaprop Dogberry and his merry band of constables, drunken Borachio, tuneful Balthasar, and wicked Don John––he of the blistered soul–– and the stage is set for one outrageous misunderstanding after another.
