About Penticton Art Gallery

The Penticton Art Gallery traces its foundation back to the 1950’s and served the citizens of Penticton in a number of locations before moving into its current purpose built facility on the shores of Lake Okanagan in 1985. The Penticton Art Gallery’s mandate is to develop an annual series of exhibitions along with public programs, a reference library and a permanent collection designed to bring the citizens of Penticton, the surrounding region and visitors to our community in contact with contemporary and historic art that is associated with the region and province while also introducing art and artists from across the country, First Nations communities and other nations and cultures. The proceeds from this fundraiser goes towards our annual exhibition, education and community outreach programs.
