The Summerland Art Gallery will relocate to a new Main Street location in June. At present

Gallery prepares to move

In 10 days, the current Art Gallery will be closing its doors forever.

In 10 days, the current Art Gallery will be closing its doors forever.

However, before it does you are invited to view two very interesting shows at the current Arts Centre.

One, Harmony in Music and Nature,  is in the Adams Room and features some fantastic felting work by Allison Altherr.

The other exhibition, aptly named My Journey Ends Here,  features lino prints from Dr. Fanderlik’s original blocks and is in the main Art Gallery.

These images reveal an impressive sense of scale and perspective, of meticulous attention to details, and a love of countryside scenes and buildings.

The Summerland Art Gallery has been located at 9533 Main St., in the former municipal hall for the last 16 years and will be there until closing time on Saturday, June 7.

If you are interested in seeing these two excellent shows do so soon.

Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

And mark your calendars for Thursday, July 10 when a new show will open at our new home at 9908 Main St.

Thanks to a tremendous amount of work by various contractors and a small group of dedicated volunteers, work is progressing well on transforming the former Willowbrook Lane into an Art Gallery with space for workshops and programs.

Walls have been built, sinks have been installed and painting is to be done.  Soon there will be new space for the kids’ Summer Art Program that begins on July 7 as well as space for workshops for young and old, not to mention space to paint next year’s street banners.

For more about our move, including photos, please visit our website at and our Facebook page at

If you know of an event you feel should be included in the Arts Palette or on the Arts Council’s online calendar, please email or call 250-404-3225.


The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, Publicity Chair and President of the Summerland Community Arts Council, 9533 Main St.
