Festival of the Grape 2017
Enjoy a little art with your wine! While attending the Festival of the Grape, be sure to visit the Fall Art Show and Sale (FASS) in the Oliver Community Centre right on site. This exciting multimedia arts event features a competition across nine categories: photography, oils, fabric arts, acrylics, three-dimensional art, watercolours, and other media. Also in the same competition are two youth categories for budding and emerging artists.
The Fall Art Show and Sale opens to the public on the Saturday, from 3 to 9 p.m. Public voting is followed by dessert reception, live entertainment, and awards. The event continues on the Sunday, Festival of the Grape, 12 noon to 5:00 p.m. On this second day of the art show, admission is to Festival ticket holders only. In addition to the dozens of artworks in competition, view featured displays by select art groups and solo artists and on-site demonstrations by local artisans. Chat with local artists and docents to learn more about the various exhibits.
Sure to tempt wine-lovers is a draw for a well-stocked wine fridge. Anyone making a donation when entering the Fall Art Show and Sale on either the Saturday or the Sunday receives a ticket for the draw.
Many artworks on display are for sale. You will make many special Okanagan memories on your visit. This is one you can take home with you and display! Proceeds from your donation or purchase assist many local arts events in our community.
The Oliver Community Arts Council invites you to wander in and let us surprise, delight, and inspire you! We truly believe our motto: “Art Learned ~ Art Loved ~ Art Lived” Celebrate art with us!
