The Jean Settle (1940 – 2012) Twelve Goddesses exhibition is on display at the Penticton Art Gallery until January 20th.

Jean, born in Vernon, was truly a self-taught artist, expressing her emotional response to the natural world, from evocative and moody, to dramatic, semi-abstract portraits of horses.

The series will draw the observer into a wordless, timeless legend.

Strong Community Support at Shatford Centre Open House

About 200 community members from all walks of life attended The Okanagan School of the Arts open house, Monday night, at Penticton’s Shatford Centre.

At the meeting, billed as a night of creative disruption, attendees were invited to speak with board members, staff and others about a new vision for how the arts, creativity and innovation sector can become a stronger driver for economic and social well-being for our community.

OSA will use what they hear to make decisions about the future of the Shatford Centre and create a plan for arts and creativity programming that will help realize the community’s vision.

The lively open house was sponsored by Valley First, a Division of First West Credit Union.

A survey has also been created as part of OSA’s efforts to engage the community in developing a strategic plan for arts and creativity programming.
