The inaugural Kelowna Art Book announces its launch this Giving Tuesday to raise funds and awareness for youth arts programming at the Kelowna Art Gallery. The book is a unique and captivating compilation that showcases the talent and artistry of more than 30 Kelowna-based artists.


“Through paintings, sculptures, photography, immersive art, AI generated works, video, and mixed media, this vibrant compilation exemplifies the richness and diversity of artistic expression thriving in Kelowna,” said Sarah Rambold, creator and publisher of the Kelowna Art Book. “It truly is a testament to the creative pulse vibrating through the city, and aims to capture this spirit for art enthusiasts, tourists, and locals alike.”
