A once annual exhibit halted by the pandemic is back in full force.

Hither and Yon features artists from across the Okanagan at Headbones Gallery June 17 to Aug. 19, with an opening reception Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m.

“This exhibition was once a yearly landmark but fell into disrepair during the COVID years,” said Julies Oakes, owner of the Old Kamloops Road gallery. “This year, we are happy to have a full slate back on board and a phenomenal exhibition being put into place.”

Artists include Doug Alcock, with his new sculpture of two ravens, Black and Chrome. Paintings by Destanne Norris and Kate Tooke will also grace the walls.

The geographical range of artists has expanded this year to include the Shuswap and one from Ashcroft, hence the title of the show.
