Peachland community arts council
The mandate of the Peachland Community Arts Council (PCAC) is to stimulate, develop, and encourage all the arts (literary, visual, and performing) in the beautiful surroundings of our Okanagan community. The PCAC recognizes the Arts as being a major contributor to the overall quality of life and economic well-being of Peachland and the Okanagan. It is our aim to bring together Artists and Artisans of all media and all ages and to coordinate either their individual or group interests in expressing their talents. In the Peachland Art Gallery, we feature local recreational artists and outstanding exhibits of those professional artists from around the Okanagan, BC and Canada.
