Great Canadian Apple Bin Paint-In returns to Kelowna Art Gallery

The Kelowna Art Gallery will once again celebrate Canada Day by hosting its annual Apple Bin Paint-In on Wednesday, July 1, between 10 am and noon. This popular family art activity offers community members of all ages the opportunity to paint their artistic visions on a side of an apple bin.

“The Apple Bin Paint-In is such an amazing event to host,” says Nataley Nagy, Executive Director at the Kelowna Art Gallery, “Not only does it provide a fun way to engage children with art, but it instills them with greater confidence in their own creative abilities.”

Thirty apple bins from BC Tree Fruits will be delivered to the Gallery for the event by transportation partner Westwood Fine Cabinetry. Partner Benjamin Moore Kelowna will once again be generously donating all of the paint for this event.

The Apple Bin Paint-In is free and open to the public, but those interested in participating will need to pre-book to reserve their side of a bin. To secure a spot please call the Kelowna Art Gallery at 250-762-2226.

After they are painted, the colourful apple bins will be kept on display on the grassy areas surrounding the gallery. At the end of the summer they will be picked up and delivered to local orchards for use in harvesting this year’s apple crop.

Participants and spectators are invited to bring a non-perishable food item to the event for donation to the Kelowna Community Food Bank. The gallery would like to extend a special thank you to Q103.1 for their promotional support.
