ReImagine Art Festival

When: Saturday September 27th, 2014

Over the course of the summer, youth artists have signed up and have been paired with professional artists to plan and paint an eight foot square mural on one of many panels located outside the Penticton Art Gallery.

Mentors and their young partners have agreed to put in 40 hours of their time over the course of the summer to see this project through completion. All murals are to be completed by September 21st and the unveiling of these works will be celebrated on Saturday, September 27th, 2014. The participating youth are asked to do a 10-15 minute talk about their murals and their experiences with their mentors over the summer months.

We will be publishing a catalogue of these teams, their experiences over the summer, and their artist statements that will be available to the participating artists and spectators.

The works will remain outside the gallery for the following year for the public to enjoy and to hopefully continue this for a second year.

Make sure to check out the gallery over the next two months to see the transformation of our now blank canvases to unique, original works of art!

Any questions or concerns please contact the gallery at 250-493-2928 or email us at
