Local artists Joan Rowan and Patricia Neil Lawton are collaborating to show their latest paintings at KT’s Restaurant on Oct. 14.

The event will include food by KT’s, music by Lent, Fraser and Wall, and new works by the well-known artists.

“Many subjects are of the local views and the local people we are familiar with,” said Lawton.

Besides being accomplished Vernon and area artists as well as instructors, both women are known for their philanthropic endeavours that have benefitted the community over the years, including Vernon Jubilee Hospital and Vernon Hospice House.

This year’s art event will feature a raffle with all proceeds going to Hospice House.

“You are welcome to dress to the nines or come dressy casual. But do come and have an enjoyable evening with us and enjoy the fine food, music and paintings,” said Lawton.

The Oct. 14 event starts at 5 p.m. and tickets are $25, now available at KT’s Restaurant, 3127-30th Ave. Phone 250-545-3228.
