Okanagan artists keep art affordable

The Okanagan Artists of Canada (OAC) hold their annual art show and sale at Paddlewheel Park Hall, with pieces available for under $100.

Original art doesn’t have to expensive to be owned.

That is the case with the Okanagan Artists of Canada (OAC) annual art show and sale at Paddlewheel Park Hall.

The show is unique in that along with paintings of all media, style and genre, each artist will have paintings available for $100 or less to fit everyone’s budget.

“Everything is in place and artists have been busy in their studios creating beautiful creations for the public to view or buy for their homes,” said OAC member Jo-Ann Rasmussen.

This year, the OAC is also accepting monetary donations for the Vernon food bank.

“As a thank you for your generosity, we will be raffling an original painting from one of our talented artists,” said Rasmussen.

“We hope you will come out and meet your local artists and enjoy a day of art and friendship.”

The OAC art show and sale takes place at the Paddlewheel Hall, on Okanagan Landing Road, Sunday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
