There is no shortage of artisans and entertainers in the Columbia Valley, and there`s never a shortage of innovative new exhibitions and performances taking place.

The upcoming calendar of events for the 2018 season at Pynelogs Art Gallery and Cultural Centre will be no exception to the rule.

“We are just in the planning segment for our 2018 gallery season,” said Jami Scheffer, executive director and gallery manager at Pynelogs. “It is a long process to plan our gallery schedule.”

There are significant plans in the works for the gallery but there is still time for artists to apply to participate.

The deadline for artists to apply to show their work is on January 15th and then Ms. Scheffer will be curating the body of work for this year. However, there are currently three confirmed exhibitions that are expected to take place in two-week timelines.

“As for highlights for the 2018 season, we have confirmed the theme for the Art From the Heart art show: Climate Change: Little Hands Big Difference,” said Ms. Scheffer noting that the exhibition will include art projects created by primary school students from Eileen Madson Primary School, JA Laird Elementary School, Edgewater Elementary School, Martin Morigeau Elementary School and Windermere Elementary School.

In addition, The Wings Over the Rockies Art Show will feature an installation entitled, If Bees are Few between May 1st and 13th, which will be featuring four artists exploring the wonder and the plight of the European honeybee known as Apis mellifera.

“The theme of the Wings Over the Rockies Festival is Webs & Roots: Talk About Networking,” said Ms. Scheffer, “so the Lil’ Peeps art show will be based on this theme.”

There will also be the David Thompson Secondary School student art show dubbed REACH running at Pynelogs between May 29th and June 10th.

“We continue to ‘bring arts to the people and people to the arts’ in all we do,” concluded Ms. Scheffer via email.

“And in our mandate to provide art in all its forms, we enjoy pushing the limit and stretching the concept of art, keeping people thinking and talking.”
