No need to wait for out-of-town visitors before visiting and stepping back in time to discover our community’s roots and history.

For those more comfortable with the heat you might want to grab an ice cream cone and wander around downtown and enjoy the many beautiful street banners.

As they have for the last 16 years these banners are available for purchase.

Drop by the new Arts Centre at 9908 Main St. and add your bid to the Banner Book.

This silent auction closes in the fall and is an excellent way to acquire a weatherproof piece of art for your deck, carport or elsewhere around your house.

While at the Arts Centre be sure to check out the current show, Heritage Houses Talk.

This is a collaborative show that features works by Albertine Meyer, Susan Gibbs, Mary Scales, Maureen King and Evelyne Turner who are members of the Studio 5 Group.

Some of the houses are still here (Balcomo, the Spencer house and others), but some like the Darke house are simply memories so this show is an opportunity to remember part of our past.

The Art Gallery is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Penticton Art Gallery is another great spot to visit during this hot weather.

They currently have three shows in their exhibit areas.

Observation and Invention, featuring works by Keith Harder, is in their Main Gallery.

The Toni Onley Gallery has works by Yvonne Morrish. Her show is entitled Drawing Upon the Imagination.

The third show, Days of Augusta, is in the Project Room and features works by one of Vancouver’s most unheralded artists Robert Keziere.

While his name may be largely unknown, you have most likely seen his work as he has quietly documented the social and cultural growth of Canada’s third largest city since the 1970s in his role of chief photographer at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the work he undertook as a freelance photographer.

The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, PO Box 1217, 9908 Main St., Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0.
