KELOWNA –– Travellers making their way towards the departure gates at Kelowna International Airport will want to view the latest installation by Oyama artist Jim Kalnin.

Commissioned by the Kelowna Art Gallery, Kalnin’s piece, entitled Pulse, is part of the gallery’s satellite art wall at the airport and is now on view through to May 7.

The piece  reflects Kalnin’s love of nature and the outdoors and is inspired by his own recent travels that he says have made him increasingly aware that we all live and must manage on this one planet.

With Pulse, Kalnin wants the departing passengers and visitors to the airport to consider their own journeys on this planet we live on.

Originally from Manitoba, Kalnin has resided in the Okanagan for the past 30 years and worked primarily as an art instructor at Okanagan University College, and later at UBC Okanagan.

Since retiring in 2009, he has exhibited his art extensively across B.C., and has authored two books, The Spirituality of Art (co-written with his wife Lois Huey-Heck) and The Spirituality of Nature.
