The 2018 OASIS Award Presentation and Wine and Cheese Reception

This is our 3rd year of hosting the prestigious 5th Annual Oasis Art Show. This year promises to be the best of the best – 47 artists showcasing over 70 original works of art.

We have planned a small change-up for our venue. We will have tents set up at the front of the historic school and will enjoy a wonderful outdoor event with the music of “Sax Among Friends”  filling the night air. Immediately after the awards presentation at 6:45 the doors to the gallery will be open allowing guests to view the exhibition.

Since this is an outdoor event the entire space will be fenced. There is no charge for  tickets but you must have one to attend. Stop by or call the gallery @ 250-767-7422 to reserve your ticket or email Janet @ gallerycoordinator@peachlandarts.ca.

We typically have a waiting list for this event so make sure you confirm your attendance asap.

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.

HOW IT WAS DONE ON TELEVISION – SEE IT ON YouTube!

PCAC Director Shelley Sweeney who devised and coordinated the project paints the final  square on the Paint-by-number project

Our goal was to have all 6,048 squares painted and documented by December 23, 2017.

All of the painting was done in the Peachland Art Gallery beginning March 24th, 2017

This has been a part of our history!
