It’s that time of year again and the Lake Country Art Gallery is busy working on its sixth annual Under 100 exhibition.

This year’s exhibition promises once again to be an impressive display of original art work from more than 60 Okanagan artists.

Art work in all mediums will be on exhibit, small works under 100 square inches are priced under $100 and a selection of art works under 200 and 300 square inches will be priced under $200 and $300 accordingly.

“In the last few years, we’ve had people waiting at our door before the show had even officially opened,” said gallery manager Petrina McNeill. “Some have even offered to buy work even before we’ve hung it.”

This year, the gallery is holding an exclusive preview event, Nov. 21 from 3 to 6 p.m.

“This is an opportunity to purchase your favourite pieces before the exhibition opens to the public,” said McNeil.

Attendees to the Under 100 exclusive preview will also have the opportunity to purchase additional first buy tickets for $2 each up until a draw at 4 p.m.

“The draw will be fast paced,” said McNeill. “Each first buy ticket holder drawn will only have three minutes to claim his or her artwork. If a piece has not been chosen in that time, another ticket will be drawn until all 10 first buy ticket spots have been filled. Once the first 10 purchases have been made, other attendees will be welcome to purchase work as well.”

Tickets for the exclusive preview event are $10 per person and include one first buyer ticket. Only 40 first buyer tickets will be available. Call or e-mail the gallery at (250) 766 -1299 or lakecountryartgallery@shaw.ca to purchase.

All proceeds from Under 100 go to the artists and to support the Lake Country Art Gallery.

Under 100 will be open to the public Nov. 22.
