Central Okanagan Open Studios

September 16-30 2006

Welcome to the first Central Okanagan Open Studios, one of the most exciting visual arts events in the Central Okanagan.

For two weeks in September artists invite you to witness art in the making, and to explore the workings of their studios. Step inside a potters wet room, discuss carving with a stonemason. Learn where artists find inspiration and why they do what they do. What makes them so passionate about their craft. For visitors, we open our doors to you.

Download the Open Studios Catalog here (it's a 3.2 MB PDF file) or pick up the Guide at one of the many convenient locations in the Okanagan.

If you prefer, you can pick up a printed copy - click here for a complete distribution list - at a number of locations in Kelowna and surrounding areas.

How to use this guide

Artists are numbered and listed by geographical location of the venue which corresponds to the map below. We suggest you use this with a road map. Each section details the artist's work, venue, opening days and times. Please be aware that some artists require you to call for an appointment, to ensure they're at home when you are able to visit.

Enjoy the journey.

Cover Artist Louise Lambert



Located on the edge of Canada's only desert, Lambert's studio is surrounded by the local vineyards that cover the hillsides above beautiful Okanagan Lake. Okanagan Wines are now considered among some of the best in the world, winning multiple gold medals both at home and abroad.

A native of Toronto, Lambert has travelled the world and captured its complexity and beauty in both portraits and landscapes. A former marketing executive for Fortune 500 companies, Louise's artistic sojourn has taken her from art studies at Ryerson University to further private studies in the US, Canada, and Singapore. A random summer visit to the Okanagan Valley captured her heart, leading her to relocate to the area.

Lambert's many showings throughout the valley have garnered wide acclaim, causing the local media to nickname her "The Lady of Light" for her ability to capture within her work the spectacular lights and shadows of the surrounding mountains, skies and vineyards.
