Kelowna Watercolour Guild at Cottonwoods

On , In Artscape

November 1, 2015 – February 2nd, 2016

2255 Ethel Street, Kelowna

The Watercolour Guild is a very special group in the Kelowna community. Founded after a group of Kelowna artists attended a watercolour workshop on Salt Spring Island in the 1970’s, they were so inspired by the watercolour medium they formed the Kelowna Watercolour Guild.  The Guild is unique in this respect and thought to be the only such group in Western Canada. Many of the artists featured in the showcase have been members of the group for over 30 years.

The current exhibit is to particularly honour Helen Fosbery, who is a long-standing member of the Guild.  She is a fine watercolourist who has sold paintings throughout the valley. Ten of her prolific works are on display and for sale.

Other artists include Alice Anderson, Karin Arkinstall, Lally Grauer, Helen Fosbery, Marlene Hamilton, Joyce Philpott, Kathleen Reece and Joan Needham.

It is truly an honour for ARTSCO and Artscape to celebrate such an outstanding group of watercolourists in the region who have been working in the medium for many years.
