Every now and then we drop into the Penticton Art Gallery just to see what the latest exhibition is and to take a walk through their lovely retail shop and have never been disappointed. Our December 2017 visit was during their sale and great fun.

This gallery focuses on BC artists of high artistic value. The show I saw was the Alistair Bell show of prints. Beautifully mounted by the Director/ curator. Thoughtfully put together to inform the viewer of the process that Bell used in his work.

Extremely interesting exhibition called, Grasslands, when I was there. Not too big so that I could not enjoy the walk through. Nice little shop. A sitting room at the end, with many intersting books related to the exhibition.
