Art @ KCT

Art at KCT is proudly sponsored by KPMG

Art @ KCT is a professional art exhibition within the lobby of the Kelowna Community Theatre presenting the work of visual artists from the Central Okanagan featuring accessible, thought-provoking visual art in two exhibition spaces, the Rise and the Cube.

Over the course of the year, this program will showcase the work of four local visual artists in each of those spaces and will celebrate Kelowna’s expansive creative community. Kelowna Community Theatre is delighted to unveil two new exhibitions as part of the recently launched Art@KCT program.

In the Rise exhibition space, Mackenzie Perras’ Tales from the Anthropocene encompasses textural, multimedia abstracts that are deeply inspired by watching the material flows that exist all around us—cycles of water and erosion, geology and rock morphology, plants and animals, the human body and organic matter, manufactured products and pollution all inform his process of encoding aesthetic and material information into abstract compositions.

In the Cube exhibition space, Lee Claremont presents Vision Quest, a vibrant, large-scale canvas never before exhibited. Claremont is Mohawk and Irish, born in Woodstock, Ontario, and a member of the Grand River Six Nations in Oshweken, Ontario. A visual storyteller with an intimate understanding of the language that colour speaks, Lee creates for us a world that bridges the past with the contemporary bringing healing through the balance of playfulness, truth-telling and courage.

Selection criteria

Program exhibitions are chosen through an annual Selection Committee comprising of arts professionals, practicing artists and Kelowna Community Theatre staff. Local artists may propose work for inclusion through an open call for submissions. Artists selected for exhibition in this program will receive appropriate CAR/FAC royalties for the presentation of their work.

Are you an emerging or professional artist from Central Okanagan interested in showcasing your work in one of the Art @ KCT exhibition spaces?
