Congratulations to Mary Sebastian, the winner of the Gallery 2 Starlight Dinner raffle! Mary and seven of her closest friends will soon be enjoying a custom eight-course meal for eight, complete with wine pairings. Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket, your support directly helps Gallery 2 programs.

Summer Programs

The team at Gallery 2 has a great summer program planned for kids age 5-12! Taking place Thursdays throughout the summer from 1 to 3 p.m., Adventures in Art will be jam packed with fun games and crafts. Make amazing crafts like egg painting, glitter slime, moving hockey players, artist trading cards, and flip books! Interact with the kinetic Wackem Sackem hockey exhibit, and experience personalized interpretation of the summer exhibitions at Gallery 2. Blow off some steam on the gallery grounds with fun games like giant jenga and octopus tag.

Drop-ins are welcome, however space is limited. To secure your place, register by stopping by Gallery 2, emailing, or calling 250-442-2211. $12 for members $15 for non-members.

Continuing Exhibitions

There are less than two weeks left until our exhibitions change, so now is your chance to get out of the heat an enjoy some art. In the Reid Gallery, Glenn Clark’s kinetic, interactive works in Wackem Sackem question the rules of the gallery and invite viewers to participate (and make some noise!) In the Fogg Gallery, Don Mabie’s drawings and artist trading cards will convince you to prefer drawing pictures while in the West Gallery, Wendy Toogood’s meticulous Nakusp Narratives will delight you with their subtle detail and approachability.

There will be an exhibit closing reception with all three artists in attendance on July 14 from 1 to 3 p.m., admission is free.

Coming Up

Join us for the opening reception of our summer exhibitions on July 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. New work by Lou Lynn, Willa Downing, and printmakers from the Alberta Printmakers Society will be installed. It will be another interesting and though provoking series of exhibitions.

Taps and Tapas 3 is back by popular demand. This year on Friday, August 17, expect a casual summer evening of beer tasting, delicious food, and great music. Tickets are on sale at the Farmers Market and Gallery 2 gift shop.
