I have a section of wall for my photography at the Art Gallery Osoyoos Summer Artisan Market. The show, featuring 33 local artists, runs until Labour Day.

The Summer Artisan Market opened at The Art Gallery Osoyoos on June 1 and it features the work of 33 local artists and artisans. It runs until Labour Day.

I’m participating this year for the first time and am showing a selection of recent photos, as well as several others I’ve never shown before. Because space for each artist is limited, I’ll be rotating the featured photos throughout the summer, but all are available and can be seen in the web gallery below. I’ll also have a special selection of cards and matted photos on display.

The Summer Artisan Market includes work by a number of talented local painters, potters, quilters and more and is definitely worth a browse. It runs until Labour Day on Sept. 2.

The gallery is open in June from noon to 4 p.m. on Tuesday to Saturday. Then in July it switches to summer hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Art Walk Osoyoos – July 27

The Art Walk Osoyoos provides an opportunity to see the work of numerous local artists displaying at several businesses and galleries on Saturday, July 27 from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

I’ll be showing at Bordertown Vineyards & Estate Winery on Highway 97 at 92nd Ave. Although most venues are in the downtown and you can walk between them, some people may prefer to drive to Bordertown, which is a little farther.

Other venues are The Art Gallery Osoyoos, Bits and Bites Cafe, Jojo’s Cafe, Okanagan Art Gallery and Boston Pizza. In addition to photography, other artists will be showing paintings, pottery, jewelry, weaving, quilting, sculpture and glass work and more.

Don’t miss this annual art event!
