I would like to share with you a plein air event being hosted by the Penticton Art Gallery this September:

The Penticton Art Gallery is pleased to once again host Penticton en plein air, as a kick-off event for the Arts Rising Festival later in September.  The PAG has invited artists working in the genre to create works of art in Penticton along Okanagan Lake from the Sicamous to the esplanade and immediate surrounding area on Saturday, September 9th and Sunday, September 10th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The general public is welcome to come observe the artists at work and get a sneak preview of the works to be exhibited in a wet painting sale that will run until September 24th.

The registration cost of twenty dollars will be used to host a wine and Greek reception for the artists at the gallery Sunday at 5 pm when the works are complete.  This is an opportune time to participate with thousands of visitors expected during the two week exhibition through a busy schedule at the gallery that includes The Tibetan Monks, an exhibition opening reception at the Penticton Art Gallery and the Arts Rising Festival.

The registration form and event guidelines can be found on our website at

For more information, please call the gallery at 250-493-2928 or email

Thank you for your time!
