OASIS 2016

The OASIS Symposium this year will be on May 14, 2016 with one day workshops available from all three presenters on May 15.

Following the format of our previous Symposiums, the artists will each give a presentation in the morning followed by a panel discussion. This year our presenting artists will be:

Mike Svob  "A Journey of Inspiration with the Man Behind the Colour”

Marney-Rose Edge  “The Beauty and Inspiration of Flowers”

Barry Rafuse “The Road to Abstraction”

In the afternoon, each artist will break out into a separate room to do a demonstration.  Attendees are welcome to take in a full demonstration from one artist or to wander from demo to demo!

Mike Svob - Oil Landscape

Marney-Rose Edge - Watercolour of flowers

Barry Rafuse - Acrylic Abstract

Tickets are $25 per person.  Admission is free for students with a valid student card.

On Sunday, each of the artists will be doing a one day workshop.  More information on the workshops click here.

One major change from previous years is the venue for this event.  This year, the Symposium will be held at the Okanagan College, 1000 KLO Road, Kelowna.  The morning presentations and panel discussion will take place in the theatre.  The afternoon rooms and Sunday workshop rooms will also be at the College.

Check back here frequently as more information will be posted as it becomes available.

The 2015 Okanagan Art Show and Inspirational Symposium was a huge success!

Workshops

If you are interested in a particular artist for a workshop, please contact Marilyn Bury at mlbury@shaw.ca.  Artists that are in demand for workshops must usually be booked at least a year in advance so we are looking for suggestions now, for next year.
