In its 21st year, ArtWalk has fast become the Okanagan’s largest art show.

In conjunction with ArtWalk, the Lake Country Art Gallery presents the month-long ArtWalk themed exhibition, A Step Forward.

“Every year since the Lake Country Art Gallery opened its doors, it has enjoyed the opportunity to play host to one of the art festival’s four main sites. 2014 will mark the gallery’s fifth consecutive year as an ArtWalk venue,” said LCAG curator Katie Brennan.

Artists have been dropping work off at the gallery for the exhibition all month long.

“We’ve opened this up to all artists as not everyone is able to be a part of ArtWalk,” said Brennan, adding, “I’m always intrigued by how folks approach a themed exhibition. I like to leave a lot of room for creativity of all sorts.”

The A Step Forward exhibition opens during ArtWalk this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and continues during regular hours to Oct. 5.

In conjunction with the ArtWalk exhibition, the gallery will also hold the third installment of the Lake Country Art Bazaar, Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The outdoor market offers an intriguing mix of vintage wares, family activities, artisinal boutiques, glass and other giftware, art books on a variety of topics and outdoor artist galleries on the grounds of the Lake Country Art Gallery’s Art House.

On Sept. 25, from 7,to 9 p.m.,  the Lake Country Art Gallery presents the 3rd round of its very popular pub-styled Trivia Nights. Co-presented by the Okanagan Young Professionals, this quiz night will test attendees knowledge on art, culture and more. Tickets are $10 per person – includes a cash bar and prizes.
