Who says you can’t help support visual arts in Kelowna and have a great time doing it? The Kelowna Art Gallery is hosting the Under a Full Moon fundraising event on Friday, November 7, 2014, from 7 to 10 pm. Enjoy an evening filled with art, music, performance, and celebration – all inspired by November’s full moon.

Kelowna-Art-Gallery-under-a full-moonUnder a Full Moon is presented with the generous support of Meiklejohn Architects Inc., and is the ninth  in the Gallery’s GO Party! series, which offers guests the opportunity to explore the Gallery’s current exhibitions while enjoying music, performance, and a lively party atmosphere.

The evening will feature a live DJ, fire spinning performances, a photo wall, fun adult art activities, refreshments, prizes, and more. A silent auction featuring gift certificates, a Big White ski package, a wine package, and more will be available for guests to bid on and take home. Our three beverage partners, Mission Hill Family Estate, Tree Brewing Co., and Urban Distilleries, will each feature selected offerings available for purchase. Three exhibitions will be open for guests to explore: 7: Professional Native Indian Artists Inc.Gary Spearin: iNifiNiTi, and The Power of Women’s Creativity.

As a fun option, guests are invited to come dressed in black and white and with accents of silver – due to its association with the moon. Proceeds from this fundraising event will benefit the Gallery’s educational programming, including our School Tours program, Family Sundays, and Art Adventures camps.
