Mabel Gawne

Gawne, a lifelong resident of Penticton, has always been fascinated with the unusual beauty of the Okanagan landscape - its rolling bench lands, sagebrush, orchards, clay cliffs and lakes. She has studied with many internationally known artists and her paintings hang in such collections as those of the Hiram Walker Distillery and Canada Trust. Many are in public and private offices, institutions and homes in western Canada and the U.S.A.
