ARTS PALETTE: Artist to offer workshops in fall

Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Summerland Art Club’s annual show was Blue Moon, by Summerland artist Pat Thomson.

Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Summerland Art Club’s annual show was Blue Moon, a mixed medium painted by Summerland artist Pat Thomson.

She will be giving workshops in the fall using these techniques.  In addition, to three beautiful pieces by Thomson, there were many beautiful works in various styles by the other talented members of this art group.

These shows are worth seeing when they are held.

The Summerland Art Club would like to thank everyone who turned out, voted for their favourite painting, and helped to make this a great event.

A number of Summerland residents are members of the Penticton Concert Band which will be performing at Gyro Park in Penticton on Sunday, July 14.

This outdoor concert , as well as their Peachfest performance Aug. 7, will feature Summerland singer Madison Johnson, an award-winning coloratura soprano, who will once again add a new dimension to a few of the band’s long-standing favourite selections.

All concerts will include a variety of styles and tunes, including classical, big band, movie themes, and selections from musicals, along with a few other styles.

There will be something to suit everyone’s taste.

Dedicated band members come to practice in Penticton regularly from all around the Okanagan and Similkameen, including Summerland, and the band is always interested in auditioning new members who can play at an intermediate to advanced level.

You can visit the website www.pentictonconcertband.ca or call 250-809-2087 for more information.

The Shatford Centre in Penticton will be host to a series of great musical, art and cultural events this summer including a benefit concert by Latin pianist Beatriz Boizán who will perform on Saturday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Considered “One of the brightest new lights in the classical world,” Boizán is admired for her vibrant personality, charismatic stage presence and unique musicianship. She delivers authentic, innovative performances of Spanish and Latin American music.

The concert is a fundraiser for Pathways Addictions Resource Centre in Penticton.  Pathways promotes the well-being of people affected by, or at risk of developing alcohol, drug and related problems.

Tickets are available in Summerland at the Sweet Tooth Cafe, 13211 Victoria Rd. N. and at the door.
