Alex Fong Galleria Exhibition
The Painters’ Studio was formed in Kelowna in 1992, as a new alternative to the established art groups who had lengthy waiting lists for new membership. At its inception, there were seventeen fellow artists working in diverse media, but open to new and innovative approaches to expressing their art. After making some serious changes in the group in 2006, they have redefined themselves into a new and forward-looking society and have come together with a new purpose. Their purpose is to promote and support their members and to encourage them in their artistic growth.
The Studios’ Okanagan artists are committed to ongoing growth through tutorials, workshops, exhibitions, and programs within The Studio itself, and have now added a website. The group has held many shows over the years, and continues to bring a high standard of fine art to the public. In 2008, the Studio was pleased to obtain registered Society status.
Members of the group include Lizann Allan, Kit Bell AFCA, Lorraine Betts, Joan Bolen, Marilynn Bury, Colleen J Dyson AFCA SCA, Barb Hanington, Tracey Mardon, Susan Priest, Tove Sorensen, Lynn Tribe, and Bonnie Weber. They bring a wealth of experience to the group with some members offering classes, and others showing their work in various galleries.
