The six artists to display their works in the 2017 Penticton Public Sculpture Exhibition have been selected. A jury made up of members of the Committee and three community representatives reviewed submissions and have chosen the following artists: Zohreh Vahidifard (Tehran, Iran), Clint George (Penticton), Patrick Field (Castlegar & Okanagan Falls), Paul Reimer (Cranbrook), Serge Mozhnevsky (Coquitlam) and Michael Hermesh (Summerland),
Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition is a year-long event designed to showcase sculpture outdoors for all to see. Although the artists have been selected, the works themselves will be unveiled May 6 at five locations along the Okanagan waterfront and one in the center of the roundabout near the Art Gallery.
The selected artists work with a wide range of media from wood to metal to marble and their influences range from indigenous culture to the natural beauty of the BC wilderness.
