Owls of all shapes and sizes are perched on the walls and display stands at the Summerland Art Gallery.

The gallery’s latest show, Who Gives a Hoot, opened Thursday evening with a gala reception

The show features a variety of wols, from paintings and photographs to taxiermy, fibre arts, ceramics and more.

Elizabeth Wrobel, president of the Summerland Potters’ Guild, said a member of the guild suggested the idea of an owl-themed art exhibit.

“They’re cute. They’re interesting,” Wrobel said of owls.

“Their eyes are fascinating, added Charlotte Bats, vice-president of the potters’ guild.

Money raised through the art show will go to the South Okanagan Rehab Centre for Owls.

The show continues until Nov. 17.
