Exhibition featuring artists from Cool Arts Society along with community members
Cool Arts, in partnership with the Ponderosa Fibre Arts Guild, the Rotary Centre for the Arts, and Kelowna Museums, wove together a colourful fibre art banner over the summer of 2021. Much thanks also go to the City of Kelowna and CLBC who provided support to the project.
The generosity of many volunteers through time and knowledge, and the participation of Mayor Basran and his son added positive vibes to our piece. With gratitude Cool Arts is pleased to present this textural, energetic, inclusive, and multi-generational fibre art banner. The end result stands out as a special success, it shows how even in the midst of a global pandemic, where there is a will there will be a way to come together safely and support each other. Together we explored creativity, learned something new, shared space, and made a community art banner that will be enjoyed for years to come.
The exhibition was in the FINA Gallery from October 15 to 28, 2021.
