Kelowna Art Gallery opens exhibition of art by Opus staff

Lake Country artist Neena Sood curates exhibition of local art showing at KAG.

The opening reception for a new art exhibit entitled Day Job will be held at the Kelowna Art Gallery on Friday, Jan. 17, 7 to 9 p.m.

This is a free event, but the art gallery asks those wishing to attend to RSVP to by Tuesday, Jan. 14.

The Day Job exhibition features work by 26 past and present staff members of Opus Framing and Art Supplies in  Kelowna.

The title Day Job refers to the fact that most artists are employed in various other occupations to provide remuneration for their expensive art habits.

Most artists who have worked at Opus would agree it has been one of their better day jobs.

Day Job is a celebration of Opus Kelowna’s 20-year anniversary of operations, and is being dedicated to the memory of the first manager of Opus Kelowna, Richard McClymont.

Day Job is curated by Neena Sood, an artist who lives in Lake Country and is a former employee of Opus.
