Celebrating the Work of Artists and Activists

by Andrew Smith Artists and Activists met together at Bottega Farm Inn on Fri Mar 2 as part 1 of the Lille Gard Discussion Series.  The idea was simply to bring together people from the Okanagan who want to change the world; who want to share ideas and experiences, and discover creative ways to advance justice causes.  The people that gathered were from all different backgrounds, faiths, social standings – but it’s safe to say that those... Read More

Writings from the Wall – Tumbleweed Gallery – On the Move

I recently had an opportunity to spend three days with Prema Harris of Tumbleweed Gallery in Penticton – why I was there for three days is another story but what I experienced was a wall-fly’s dream of observation. As Prema navigated a day of framing with interruptions of visitors, phone calls, and further framing requests I watched miscellaneous pieces of mat, glass and photographs be a catalyst for a gathering place of minds that was created... Read More

Writings from the Wall. Penticton Art Gallery – First Fridays

While local and world events indicate that our government, in conjunction with corporations,  are moving further away from the minds of the people, individuals and communities and are persistently moving towards sustainability, diversity, and collaborations that create new systems and organizational structures that push against the fabric of that larger spread. As those threads are unraveled the existing fabric cannot hold the weight of its own construction.... Read More

WRITINGS FROM THE WALL – rhean murray –the power of the letter

We are words. It is what separates us from all other livings things on the planet. Without words we would not be what we are.  Much of what we are exists through the meaning and exchange of words. It is the heartbeat of communication and has the power to control and condemn or unleash and inspire. To take that idea a step further, if the meaning and use of words have power then so does the structure of a written language itself. The use of last names... Read More

Writings from the Wall – Reasha Wolfe – Public Space

What is all the fighting about? The fighting is about space. How there is not enough space or that some have too much space. How to organize space: the value of shared spaces versus private spaces. How we move in that space: settled, nomadic, or migratory. How the ownership over space defines the cost of that space. For many of us space is a hot commodity, meaning most of us can`t afford it. So as artists we use kitchens, bedrooms and dining room... Read More

Writings from the Wall – Endrene Shepherd – Coming Home

My transition back to Penticton after living in Vernon for two years has been an interesting one. It is not the same city that I left. Penticton can be a challenging place to live; overwhelmed with tourists, athletes and those in search of the best wine in the summer time to long over-cast winters where those who can leave, do reducing the population significantly. Tourism can have damaging effects on the core of communities; so much emphasis on one... Read More

writings from the wall-Gabrielle Villecourt-Cooperative Marketing

  The Golo Art Project has been partnering with a number of local businesses to help promote each other and share resources. When we work in this manner, namely partnerships,  we build community. It is hard not to think about the events that are happening around us, like  the Occupy efforts happening around the globe in particular. Considering the present social/economic climate, the Golo Art Project is happening at a very interesting time.... Read More

writings from the wall – yako de arburn- a parallel artality

It is always interesting when life comes full circle.  I first painted with Yako de Arburn in his studio in Cawston, BC back in 2000.  When one paints in the same room with another painter, one inevitably picks up techniques in colour, style and theme without necessarily talking about it. In the years that followed I would again be part of a larger painting group with Yako, so to now share a gallery space and wall with him at the Golo Art Project ... Read More
