The Penticton Art Gallery is proud to partner with the Meadowlark Nature Festival to present the work of Skyler Luke Punnett.
Home is more than a place. It is an embodied feeling that comes and goes in relation to our felt sense of connection. Like sight, sound and touch, it is either there, or it is not. Without the stimulus of home, the sense of being there cannot be embodied. We need it to feel it.
In Sense is a collection of works created upon Skyler Punnett’s return home to Penticton after 10 years living on the coast. The subject matter is comprised of the natural flora and fauna of the Okanagan, while the spirit strives to address the differing and often conflicting emotional connections one experiences to home. From reverence to revulsion, home has many forms and flavours, especially after time spent away.
Artist talk: Saturday May 19th 1-2pm
