The Penticton & District Community Arts Council has invited senior (55+) to exhibit their own expression of what aging well means to them, an opportunity to reflect on their past as well as their vision for the future, for this two-part exhibition.


Gallery I features a group exhibition from an open call for participants. Pottery, oil, watercolour, mixed media, and more. Participating artists range from emerging artists to seasoned professionals.

Gallery II features paintings created during the community painting drop-in events with Alice Strohmaier. Alice led several events from May to August, in Penticton & Kaleden, where participants were given a 10×10” canvas panel and the same set of acrylic paints to work with while creating what aging well means to them.
