The Party Aquatic


The Party Aquatic makes a splash July 5th at the Kelowna Art Gallery

Kelowna, BC: Who says you can’t help support art education and have an amazing time doing it? Not us at the Kelowna Art Gallery, where we invite you to channel your inner sailor and break out your finest navy blues & whites for our upcoming fundraising event, entitled The Party Aquatic, to be held on Friday, July 5, 2013, from 7 to 10 pm.

The Party Aquatic is our 7th in the GO Party! series, which pairs a Gallery Opening with live entertainment, refreshments, performances, art activities, and socializing. The evening will feature three bars, an aquatic-themed buffet, door prizes and silent auction, a hands-on art activity, plus musical entertainment by
DJ Q, who will spin vintage surf, reggae, and calypso music.

Proceeds from this fundraising event will benefit the Gallery’s educational programming, including our school tours program, Family Sundays, and Art Adventures art camps.

This fundraising event coincides with the opening of the exhibition, Douglas Walker: Other Worlds, on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery from July 6 to September 29, 2013. The exhibition features a massive seventy-seven-foot-long work on paper of an enormous whale, flanked by a mask made for a human face, and a full moon. This work will occupy the entire long wall of our large gallery space. Douglas Walker: Other Worlds is organized by the Dalhousie Art Gallery in partnership with the Robert McLaughlin Gallery and the Kelowna Art Gallery, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
