Residents are being asked to contribute their old unused household paint in support of the creation of Lake Country’s newest public art piece.

On Thursday, Vernon’s Katie Brennan, the artist behind the Davidson Road public mural project, will be holding a paint drive.

“The aim of this paint drive is twofold: One, to find donations of paint to support the cost of materials for the Davidson Road public mural project. Two, to provide Lake Country residents with a safe and useful way to dispose of unwanted and unused household paints,” said Brennan.

The artist is looking for any and all acrylic latex paint or primer in any colour, as well as matte or eggshell interior or exterior acrylic latex paint.

Paint cans should be at least half full. Oil or enamel-based paint will not be accepted, nor will any gloss or high gloss paints.

On Thursday, Lake Country residents can have their paint picked up in their driveways by contacting Brennan at or call 250-351-9555. (Vernon residents can also have their paint picked up. Contact the artist for details.)

Residents can also drop off their cans of unused acrylic latex paint from now to July 8 at the Lake Country Arena, located at 9830 Bottom Wood Lake Rd.

Paint will only be accepted from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday and can be placed in the bin provided, located on the south side of the building.
