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.

A special thank you to the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art for supporting the exhibition program framework and program launch.

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.
