One of the largest Fine Art Photography Exhibitions in the Okanagan featuring 24 fine art photographers showcasing 76 images
In Celebration of Canada’s 150th in 2017
In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday the Peachland Community Arts Council unofficially for a few months towards the end of 2017 broke the Guinness World Record (the largest number of participants painting a ‘paint by number’ at one venue). 6048 visitors to the Peachland Art Gallery painted a ONE – 1” SQUARE on our 6 x 7 foot canvas, and signed our participants log book acknowledging their work and recording their square number. The previous world record holder for a paint-by-number prior to that was populous Victoria in Hong Kong, China with 2603 participants. However, that record has now been beaten in December 2017 by the city of Doha, Quatar, with a gigantic 24 by 35 foot giant image of the Emir of Qatar. Thanks to you, our members, to visitors from around the province, country, even the world, and most of all to our wonderful volunteers – Peachland with its Art Gallery is now proudly on the Map. It has been fun for a short time being number ONE and in this way celebrating Canada’s history.
