Fall 2010 Exhibitions on View

Constructions of Identity: Recent Additions to the Permanent Collection of the Kelowna Art Gallery

The Kelowna Art Gallery is pleased to present our large exhibition for the fall, Constructions of Identity, which brings together a selection of works of contemporary art that have been added to the Gallery’s permanent collection in the last two years. Loosely assembled around the theme of the construction of one’s identity, many of the works depict images of the human form, either with detailed naturalism, or generalized abstraction. The majority of the artists with works included in the show live and work in the Okanagan. Works range in media from mixed media on paper, or acrylic on canvas to screenprinting. This exhibition is an important opportunity for the Kelowna Art Gallery to share these newly acquired works with the community at large, for whom the Gallery holds them in trust.

Keith Langergraber: Rattlesnake Island

Also on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery is the work of Vancouver-based artist Keith Langergraber in a solo show entitled Rattlesnake Island. Langergraber spent his youth in Kelowna and delves into his roots in the region by exploring local lore, including the Ogopogo and Eddie Haymour. The show includes a fifteen-minute-long film, a shack constructed in our courtyard space, and two installations of drawings, one in the form of a book. Langergraber’s central artistic inspiration for this body of work was Bas Jan Ader, a twentieth-century Dutch conceptual artist. Ader disappeared at sea in 1975 while attempting to sail from the east coast of the United States to Europe in his sailboat, The Ocean Wave.

Constructions of Identity and Rattlesnake Island are on view now through December 12, 2010. The Kelowna Art Gallery is located at 1315 Water Street in the heart of the Cultural District in Downtown Kelowna. Hours are: open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; Thursday until 9 pm; Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm; and closed Mondays. Admission to the gallery is $5 for individuals, $4 for students and seniors or $10 for a family. FREE admission on Thursdays from 3 – 9 pm.
