Dorothy Tinning. Creative Exploration Through Landscape Art
For twenty years the Meadowlark Festival has commissioned an artist to create a piece of art to be used as support material. There is a thread that runs through all of these careers: all the artists have staked their careers on work that promotes nature, and stewardship of the land. The British Columbia landscape is special, unique, and so are the artists that inhabit it. It was only a matter of time before Dorothy Tinning was asked to join this impressive list of important artists that include Allan Brookes, J. Fenwick Landsdown, Robert Bateman, Lee Claremont, and Julia Hargreaves, to name just a few...
Dorothy believes that we all have a responsibility as stewards of the land, whether it be in your garden or in the wilderness. Tinning finds her magic spots and here reflects on the ecosystem, how everything thrives without the interference of man. She continually and consciously learns more about her surroundings when researching her paintings with the goal in mind to make the world a better place. The Penticton Art Gallery is honoured to host this important exhibition at the most relevant of times.

Reflections. Annual High Schoool Exhibition
Once again the Penticton art Gallery is proud to host the annual local high school exhibition. Sometimes it is easy to forget what it was like to be a teenager. This popular exhibition not only showcases the local emerging talent, of which there is lots, but also allows viewers much insight into the thinking, attitude and struggles of today’s young citizens.
