Our Okangan

THE STORY

4 artists - 4 landscapes - 4 different ways


In February 2021, four artists, Cynthia Gunsinger, Theresa Edwards, Christina Knittel, and myself Nikki Balfour, got together for a daily painting challenge.

The idea was to paint daily and possibly even finish a painting a day.

They painted their little hearts out, posted online, and their followers loved it.

But the most exciting part was Sundays.  Each week, one artist would contribute a photo from which all four would paint in their unique style.

The artwork created on those four Sundays is now hanging in the Atrium with more landscape artwork on the 7th floor at Kelowna’s Innovation Centre 460 Doyle Ave. (beside the public library) till the end of June.  Local to the area?  Take yourself on a self guided tour.  The building hours are Monday to Friday, 8-5pm.

On Intagram?  Post your best picture of the local landscape with hashtag #ourokanagan for a chance to have it painted by us four artists!
