With spring in full swing, The Artym Gallery is welcoming the work of two popular artists for a unique exhibition celebrating spring, Easter, and the long weekend! The walls of our downtown gallery have been adorned with new arrivals from gallery artists Alex Fong and Anita McComas. Animal and nature lovers of the Valley won’t want to miss the combined works of these artists. The exhibition begins on Saturday, April 20th with an Alex Fong fun watercolour activity.
This will be the very first dual show combining the works of Alex Fong and Anita McComas. Both of these Kelowna based artists capture the beauty of nature in their own unique ways. Ms. McComas is known for her overlapping “riotous strokes” of beautiful bold colour, and a genuine sense of movement rooting her piece in the natural world. She brings bears, owls and landscapes to life with her energetic brushstrokes. Her career has really taken off and this will be her first large scale show at the Artym Gallery. This weekend is the perfect opportunity to come and see why her pieces make the perfect addition to any home or business.
Mr. Fong is always a lovely artist to have at the gallery. Since the gallery first opened, 18 years ago, it’s hard to think of a year that hasn’t had an appearance from him. With 13 new works from Mr. Fong, it will be hard not to fall in love with one of his latest paintings. His collection is full of natural elements such as waterfalls, mountain landscapes, bighorn sheep, and even a skier or snowboarder to reminisce about the change of seasons. His dreamlike watercolour pieces with beautiful chickadees and whimsical confetti dots are like being lost in thoughts of happiness.
Mr. Fong will be in attendance on Saturday from 11-3 p.m. with a fun Easter activity in tow! He has sketched a variety of Easter eggs onto a canvas for adults to come paint. Anyone who helps paint an Easter egg at the event will be entered to win the unique collaborative piece. So stop by and get inspired by the lovely works of Anita McComas and Alex Fong, and you’ll get to add your own artistic flare onto a canvas.
Gallery hours on Saturday April 20th are from 10-5:30 p.m. The Alex Fong & Anita McComas show continues until April 26th. Can’t wait? Our exhibition can be viewed on our website at artymgallery.com
Happy Easter from the Artym Gallery!
