NEW PAINTINGS | INSIDER LOOKS INTO MY STUDIO | upcoming shows & events
My chair "Please Stand By" (left) has now been installed at the Lake Country Museum at 11255 Okanagan Centre Rd W, where it will stay for the next two years! I was so honored to have is placed next to chairs made by Leanne Spanza (right) and Margaret Kyle (center) - two incredibly talented local artists. Our trio of chairs is situated underneath a shade tree that overlooks Okanagan lake. It is a beautiful spot to take a break, people watch and enjoy a fantastic view.
45 chairs were painted in total and are currently being installed throughout the Okanagan from Osoyoos to Salmon Arm. All chairs will be installed in clusters of 3 at parks or beaches. More information about the project is available here.
If you're looking for an adventure, going on a scavenger hunt to locate all the chairs would be a great way to spend a weekend! If you need some clues for where to find them, you can use the hashtag #ArtWalkArtChairs to see photos of people with the chairs! Good luck :-)
You can also watch an interview with Hello Okanagan about this project - my chair is featured at the 16-minute mark!
