“Kamloops Artists Since 1992” By Kamloops Artists in the KAC Main and Hallway Galleries

“Yes, Kamloops we have been here.”

The Kamloops Artists is a group of artists that has been a part of Kamloops for thirty years. Sharon Olfert and Marjorie Herchak were the founders and the original name was Kamloops Watermedia. As the group grew and evolved, artists were welcomed to use different mediums and the group became Kamloops Artists. Some members are from the original group but some members have just recently joined. The group includes established artists as well as beginning artists and usually meets at Parkcrest Activity centre on Tuesday afternoons from September to June and for plein air painting in the summer months. The Pandemic has changed this but we will be back once we can meet again. This exhibition is a culmination of pieces recently created within this group. Expect to see two or three pieces from each member who has entered. This show that is sure to be full of surprises. If you are interested in joining the Kamloops Artists, contact Carol Straley at vcstraley@gmail.com .

This show is running Saturday April 24 – Saturday May 15, 2021.

About Kamloops Courthouse Gallery

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.

The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.

Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.

We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
