The Penticton Art Gallery and Cannery Brewing are pleased to partner once again for the 3rd annual SQUARE Mural Project. This January, a call went out to artists interested in participating and nearly 50 submissions were received. A jury reviewed the applications and have now completed the artist selection. The applicants’ talent was off the charts and it was a tough decision with an incredible amount of deliberation. But the committee chose ten regional artists, who have been selected to create 4’ x 4’ mini murals.

The ten selected artists are (in alphabetical order by first name): Arianne Tubman, Brittney Bidlake, Endrené Shepherd, Lukas Lundberg, Naomi Qoyllur Díaz Robledo, Neil Erickson, Robyn Sylvester, Taylor Baptiste, Toni Albert, and Zac Abney!

All the works were framed and installed by Cannery Brewing in advance of the opening reception on Friday, March 24th as the kickoff event for the 2nd Annual Ignite the Arts Festival.

The murals will be displayed at Cannery Brewing from March 24th to October 18th, at which time the ten works will be auctioned off. Each of the artists will receive a $500 honorarium and 50% of the proceeds from the auction in late October. The remaining proceeds from the auction will support the Penticton Art Gallery’s community outreach including the continuation and expansion of this program with Cannery Brewing.
