Art Galleries & Artists
Glass artwork (Danielle Hayes photo)
Art in the Thompson Okanagan is diverse: explore cultural districts surrounded by lakefront scenery, sample artisan food and wine, and discover independent artists who work from home.
Artistic works range from First Nations pictographs in Hedley to modern contemporary classics at the award-winning Kamloops Art Gallery. Many large sculptures can be seen throughout the Okanagan "Cultural Corridor," a 200km/120mi section of the Okanagan Valley that runs from Enderby in the north to Osoyoos in the south.
Interested in jewellery making? Have a "hands-on" experience digging opals from Canada's first opal mine, located near Vernon, or buy a piece of jewellery made from this local treasure.
