New show opening at Pynelogs
by Josh Estabrooks
Have you checked out the latest show at Pynelogs yet? No? Well get your art-loving self down here before it’s too late! We have one of the most eclectic shows in the history of the gallery on display, featuring 38 artists from up and down the valley.
It seems many people still don’t know just how much their patronage means to the Columbia Valley Arts Council. Did you know that Pynelogs takes less commission from their featured artists than most of the other private galleries you visit? Did you know that because it is a not for profit organization you can get a break from the taxman? This means that when you buy a work of art from us, you not only put more money back into the pockets of local artists, but you become one of the driving forces behind the continuation of CV Arts.
Becoming a member is easy as well. We have membership forms available, and for a nominal fee you could be a direct contributor to the success of CV Arts. As well, we will be drawing one current member’s name this summer and the winner will receive a trip to Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in the Okanagan.
So hurry down to the greatest beachside art gallery in town and check out the myriad of artwork we have on display. We will be busy preparing for our first featured artist showcase of the summer this week. These shows are sure to please, as they involve a small number of artists who work in a wide variety of mediums.
The next show, which features Val MacPhee, John Niddrie, Marty Ryan, Jim Lawrence, Tom Symington, Gerry George and Cathy Parkes, begins on June 19 and runs until July 1. Our artist opening event will take place on Wednesday, June 20 from 7-9 p.m. and we are expecting it to be another fabulous evening. These fun, inspiring, evening events are attracting more and more people down to the gallery, so don’t miss out on a chance to get some one on one time with any of our featured artists and have a tasty beverage in a beautiful setting.
